    Good Morning

    Thanks to a lot of good advice on this site, I managed to successfully hatch all three my Pekin duck eggs over the weekend in my homemade incubator "so excited!!!" but all three my little ones are black???
    I was expecting fluffy little yellow ducklings, not that I mind [​IMG]but can anyone tell me why they are black?

    Also when can they have their first swim?

    Thanks D

    Could be a case of egg switcheroo. Bob puts runner eggs under broody pekin, doesn't tell Sam. Sam gets the eggs and sells them to you. Or you could have a completely new breed, The Black Pekin!
