The males are the same colouring as the dad.. And i even got 2 dark brown ducklings out of the hatch?? Please help me its confusing :)

    I know your new and [​IMG] but do a bunch of posting so you can post some pics pics are worth a thousand words. Not sure how many posts you have to make before you can post a pic but i don't think it's many.

    Hi, and [​IMG]

    How long have you been raising ducks? I have runners and buffs, but yet to do any hatching.

    We had a very nice visit with some friends who welcome us into their home for a wonderful feast and visiting. We all enjoy making simple delicious things to eat, everyone brings something. I brought ginger-garlic-cranberry chutney, my beloved made a gluten-free apple dessert. Our host made, among other things, straw mushrooms in an onion cream sauce. I refrained from eating the entire bowl of mushrooms. The ducks had a couple of nice walks and a pea party before we left. I hope janalee can join in and rack up posts, so that photo's may be uploaded for our enjoyment and edification.
