    3rd times a charm for my Fulvous Whistling Ducks. They kept wanting to make a mountain of their nest and the eggs kept rolling out down hill. Finally on the 3rd clutch of eggs they didn't build up their ground and had 7 of 9 duckling hatch yeah

    I purchased them from Bob Johnson in Fla. last year The only problem with having Native American Migratory birds is having to purchase a Federal Permit in my name in order to be able to sell them, have to keep records, and have to permanently mark them as captive bred birds by pinioning or toe clip. I toe clipped them with toe nail clippers. Only 1 had a tiny speck of blood thankfully as it was my first time

    They really are striking! It would be fun to see a few more pics of the ducklings as they grow.

    Beautiful ducks. And ones I'd never seen before. I love the ducklings. They all look like they have little cat burglar masks on. [​IMG]

    Your ducks are really pretty, i like the hens rich brown color. The ducklings are also super cute.
