    You'll need to update your sig... since you aren't waiting for spring :)

    Look at it this way, they'll be old enough to lay eggs by spring.

    My metzer duck Shelley is the smartest in the flock. Wendy is also a metzer duck and she is dumber than a box of rocks, but she is sweet [​IMG]

    Do your WHs go broody, Wifezilla? That's what I'm hoping for though I know my new babies won't be ready for next year.

    They haven't yet, but Wendy just went through a heavy molt. Shelley is laying but I am seeing lose feathers on her. Lexus is TRYING to lay but has only produced a couple of jello eggs so far. I am not expecting any brooding attempts until they are laying more regularly. At least one of the 4 should go broody by spring.

    Oh my goodness, I'm jealous. At 11 o'clock last night I almost ordered me some WH from Metzer's, too.

    I came SO CLOSE.

    Lucky.
