    We have 2 Cayuga ducks - 1 male and 1 female ( there was 3 female then a fox got them [​IMG]) and 4 Guinea hens. I'm going to attempt to incubate some of the females eggs and hatch some. But additionally I want to add maybe some silver apple yard ducklings or Rouen ( or both ) and possibly 3 female chickens - Easter eggers. Any advice / tips? Al the new ones would be babies.

    Introductions will need some forethought and attention, but folks do it all the time, successfully.

    Size differences can be tricky, and so can personalities. And ducklings don't always play nice.

    There is a sticky on hatching waterfowl eggs - have you seen it?

    I haven't seen hatching waterfowl eggs. Do you have a link?
