    They are adorable Sally! [​IMG] So sorry the others didn't make it, but I bet these two keep you busy! Can you tell the sex of ducklings based on color or feathers or is it like most chicks where it is a wait and see situation?

    Fisherlady, your Sadie is beautiful. I should be headed to the Jersey Shore for our annual NYD trip, just can't commit to the idea of driving down there just to head back again.

    I miss DH and the kiddos, but I do have chickies hatching to keep me entertained.

    The voices are telling me to keep my mouth shut (okay. My hands from typing!) but they bring me to mind of Wyandottes.

    Sally,

    When I have ducklings, I just use a regular plastic chick waterer. As long as they can get their nostrils wet, they have enough water. They don't need to swim, and the more water they have to slop in, the more they stink. Ducklings are cute, but there's a reason we started calling them 'stinklings'.

    Oh, once they start laying again, I'll have blue Swedish eggs to share/trade.

    Sally, So sorry for your loss. The ones that hatched are beautiful. Do not give up trying. your step by step was so informative. I would love to see more from you. I have call ducks and may need your expert advice when they start to lay.
