I just got a trio of scovies, 2 females and a male. I am keeping them for someone who is on a strict diet and duck is one of the few things he can eat. So hopefully these guys hatch lots of babies for him to eat!! I believe he said they already hatched some this year, and we also got 2 of their babies (about a month old) that we have put with our other ducklings. I didn't have much time to research the breed before we got them, what can you tell me about them? Is it possible they could still hatch a set of ducklings this year?? They are confined in a pen/coop right now (just the three) but will they be okay to free range with my chickens and other ducks eventually?
