    Hi I am Colin and I am wondering wether My Muscovy has created a record
    in the fact that she laid 22 eggs in one nest and hatched every single one.I am now the proud owner of 1 male 1 female
    and 22 little ducklings.Can they be sexed at a young age.

    [​IMG] That's a heck of a batch of ducklings. Other than vent sexing (done by trained individuals) it is nearly impossible to sex ducklings.

    Hi Colin and welcome to BYC - glad that you have joined us. Maybe the folks over in the Duck forum can verify your possible record - https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks. Either way, it sounds like pretty impressive!

    All the best

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Congrats on all those eggs! You will definitely want to post in our Ducks section for more info about any records being broken. I don't keep ducks, but this surely sounds like a lot of eggs to me! LOL

    Enjoy all your babies and welcome to our flock! :)

    Nice to meet you Colin. Your duck sounds like a record breaker to me. Wow, I can just picture 22 little ducklings following her in a line.
