    Hey! Madeline here, a high-schooler planning out a spring duck-hatching. I'm new to all of this. My family has hatched chickens before with limited success; only one little chick made it. I plan on hatching Cayuga duck eggs, and would be very open to any hatching advice, duck advice, or more specific Cayuga duck advice! I'm excited to have found this site, it has been very helpful so far!! :)

    Hi Madeline, nice to meet you. I'm not well informed on ducks but, if you go to "Other Backyard Poultry" forum you will find threads on geese and ducks,guineas, quail etc. The duck folks should be able to answer your questions.
