    Yep this is my 9year old drake back a couple years ago. He still loves to get in the pool just doesn't walk so good anymore. But I do think the brewers yeast has helped him there too.

    I know what you mean. Last winter there were suddenly a few ducks in my backyard, begging for food. They were starved. They never left. In fact, i now have a garden full of animals. Chickens, ducks... All thanks to those two..![​IMG]

    She hasnt moved off the nest in acouple of days now..maybe a week..she does roll eggs out of the nest once in awhile...They are scovies..when I got the drake acouple years ago, the only ducks there where scovies..and the 2 hens same deal.I know mule ducks are sterile. Maybe I should check again in acouple days..

    So pretty! I love the chocolate female nice solid colors! Its so hard to tell if their drakes or ducks everyday I look at mine I wonder if they really are girls, the white one I'm pretty sure is a duck, she just looks prettier than the other two, she is almost a week older though.
    Would love to see a pic of the black markings, is it just a random gene that comes up every now and then?
