    Hello all. I started out this past spring with a pekin and a fawn runner ducklings. through a series of craiglist finds and one gift from my husband i now have the original two, three muscovies, two call ducks, a khaki campbell and an east indie. I decided i was going to raise them for eggs and meat so my husband bought an incubator for my birthday. I set five eggs for my first duck hatch(i also hatch chickens) they were all from my fawn runner and the dad could have been call duck, east indie, pekin, or khaki campbell. two of the eggs were not fertile, two were cracked in a viscious attack by my two year old [​IMG] The final egg made it to hatch....so excited. so without further ado.......here she is
