    I have one magpie hen - plan on finding a drake or another hen for the flock. She is kinda like a scovie in the fact that she hatches out big clutches. Her last hatch on 10/28 was 17 ducklings - but one was smothered. She is one of the BEST mamas ive had so far, very protective but also let me take her babies inside out of the nest. I'll post pictures later
