My children and I were thinking about trying to hatch some ducks for Christmas. We've hatched plenty of chickens, but never a duck. We dont really know anything about ducks. But we thought it would be fun to try something new. Are there any breeds that are harder to hatch than others? What is a good breed to start out with. We would have to buy the eggs from ebay. Currently we are looking at calls, Welsh harlequins, and runners. Any advice? We definetly want to do a Christmas hatch, but would it be better to wait til Spring for ducks for any particular reason?
