    Quote:It's a mutt lol. It came from either my cayuga or runner hen (green egg) and there's 4 drakes to choose from, muskovie, runner, cayuga or swedish mix lol

    Quote:OH YEAH she quacks between naps lol. #2 mutt just hatched, this one is almost completely black so probably more cayuga. My man says I'm allowed to keep 1 (surprised at that since I already have 22 lol) so it's a choice between the first born or cayuga (my fave breed of all). One more has it's beak poking through so I'll see what that is but I think it might be a Pekin. I already have 3 LOUD ones, I don't want another one lol. I realized the other day I think I have muskovie eggs in there too. Let's just say my ducks eggs are very fertile, just like my bantams!! [​IMG]
