    My two ducks are laying like crazy and i already have 8 eggs in the bator. I have 4 eggs from the last two days that i dont know what to do with. If someone were to want some I could throw in an Americauna egg or two and a couple Americauna mixes, (barred rock, white leghorn or Black sexlink.

    My ducks are Rouen Drake and my hen ducks are Blue Swedish and Crested Mallard (she is the normal mallard color not white) .

    Let me know if anyone wants to make an offer, im pretty sure shipping alone will be about $12

    WAH!!! [​IMG]...I just emptied out my paypal account buying shorts for my boys. They grew out of their clothes so fast!!!
    And I just found out my "Quackers" is really "Daisy" She just started laying eggs. Her partner was killed months ago by a predator. I would love to give her some babies..I will check back when the cash flow comes back.

    What is the incubation time for ducks? Is it the same as chicks or longer?

    Most ducks are 28 days. Ones listed on here are 28.

    Is there anyway I could see pics of your ducks? I am looking for a Rouen/Crested cross as the one my 5 year old raised from a egg was attacked by a stray dog. I know we are unlikely to get one just like her but I figure if the parents look about right we have a decent chance.

    Here a link to a picture of Duckling when she was about half grown. You can't see it but she has a crest on the other side of her head.

    I just moved this weekend and havent gotton my internet hooked up at my new house yet. When i get it hoooked up i can show yall picks. My female crested mallard looks like yours. She is smaller because she is mallard and she is crested. brown with black speckles, if you will. The roeuen Drake is Gorgeouse with typical breed standard color. The other female is Blue Swedish. They have not stopped laying since I moved they did not miss a beat, more dependable than my white leghorns.
