    Hello I have a young pair that I purchased at two weeks old in March I believe. How long does it take for the mandarin male to mature? Also what is the best kind of incubator for mandarins / wood ducks. Thanks !

    If you mean mature as in to breed and make ducklings they will be ready to go next spring. Hovabators are fairly cheap and pretty reliable for what you would need. However with the questions you ask ( being new to this) I think you should let the hen raise them herself. Google mandarins and learn up on them.[​IMG]
