    Hi,
    I'm incubating and hatching Appleyard X Khaki Campbell ducklings (they hatch tomorrow), does anyone have any photos of what they could look like?
    Also any suggestions for homemade toys for them, they already have a mirror and bell and I'm open to any suggestions.
    Thanks :)

    No photos, but I do have some KC crosses here. KCs make really neat crosses and I will be eagerly awaiting your pics. Here is a link to a Calculator site that should help you see what genes your ducklings will carry.

    ETA: Some KC traits are sex-linked, meaning that males and females can be distinguished by color sometimes when crossed!

    Thank you so much :)
    They hatch today, I will send photos as soon as I can,
    Does anyone know the success rate if I have six fertile eggs?
