    I am in love with my SA from Celtic Oaks. They are still young, just about 4 months old or so.

    This is my favorite drake, Henry. He's such a handsome guy! See him looking at me? LOL

    My other drake who is still getting big boy feathers. He's a couple weeks younger than Henry.

    Whoa zooweemama, those pictures are eye candy. Did you take them? I really love the one of your pretty girl stretching! It would be great in a duck calendar or something (do they make those?)

    The ducks themselves are very nice, too. I always hear great things about Appleyards and these guys look like quality individuals. How big are they?

    I did take them myself. My Instagram and Flickr are loaded. haha I have so many pics of these guys and my chickens lol.

    They are really big. Bigger than my production Pekins. They weigh 9/10 pounds right now (my one drake I think might weigh a little more than 10 pounds). I think they are about as big as they are going to get. I love them. Watching them on the pond is such a treat!
