    Hello! We took the plunge this spring, and adopted some ducklings. I've been reading this forum incessantly since then...and can't thank everyone enough for the wonderful advice/information. Here is a photo of our duck family... Front to back: Spatula (Apricot Campbell Drake), Merlin (Blue Swedish Drake), Lucy Wu (Splash/Swedish Duck), Gilby (Apricot Campbell ?...doesn't make any sounds yet...no quack, no rasp...nothing. smiles a lot though), Rio (Cayuga Duck), Hendrix (Fawn & White Runner Duck) and Bender (Fawn & White Runner Duck). They range in age from 12-17 weeks....so, we are hoping for some eggs in the not to distant future [​IMG]

    spinn,

    thank you so much for sharing this wonderful picture of your ducks.
    What a fantastic flock, and such a lovely array of colors.
    I love the way they are all looking at the camera.
    what a cheery way to start my morning.

    Thanks for the warm welcome! It's been fun watching their "big boy & girl" feathers come in. I'll try to post another picture of Spatula (the apricot campbell in the front) when his head is completely silver. He's getting really pretty! Until then, I'll keep learning amongst you!

    Oooh - Apricot Campbells! [​IMG]

    You must be on the "other side of the pond", right? I don't think we have those here in the U.S. [​IMG]
