    since it's getting close to baby season, let's see those spotted ducklings!
    Magpies, Anconas, mixes. Anything spotted and cute!

    I'll start: black and white ancona female
    I'm hoping she grows out to be an excellent show and breeder prospect!

    Last Hatch I had, I candled and I was like day 14-18!and the ducking put both of its feet against the egg, and wiggled it's toes. One of the biggest reasons I continue hatching!

    I can't take the cuteness! It's too much!! <3

    Also I kinda had a question on genetics. With Bean surprising us by being a tri-color "tortie", we have no idea what kind of offspring she and Wobbles could produce. The calculator isn't much help since there's no option for tricolors. Since she's got white, blue and red on her, what would her ducklings be with a white drake as the daddy?
