    I would realy like to hatch some ducks ths coming yesr. Im new to ducks this year but have learned quite a bit here on BYC. I have put the hint out to Santa (DH) so hopefully he takes the hints...they have been big and often.
    I have a mixture of ducks so if I do hatch any out I will have Runners , Pekin x Magpie and Pekin/Swedish x Magpie.

    Awww so sweet. I'm planning to use a broody buff orpington hen to hatch out some blue runners this coming spring. Has anyone else used a broody chicken before?

    I think they're due around the 16th of December - they have only just started the incubation period... very excited! Never had runners before. I was told by the lady who gave them to me that they were brown and white, so I'm thinking she means fawn and white runners. Going to be a long 4 weeks! [​IMG]
