What is their personality like? I have 2 young kids and anything I consider must be "nice"
They are pretty calm. Mine just kinda exist LOL. I have plenty of other ducks I found I tend to not notice the cayugas.. they dont do anything special/ catch my eye too often from being bad LOL. I think they would be fine around kids... all ducks if raised around kids would have no issue with them.. The only ones I have ever bite me was my jumbo pekins... but it seems to be just mine that are little pains! Haha
Depends on breed & temperatures. Silkies see to always nest on the floor at night snuggled together but will occasionally roost if you have a roost about 6 inches off the floor that they can just hop/step up onto. Some other breeds tend to prefer the floor as well, usually broody breeds. Some of my chicks roost as early as a week or so old, others are nearly at laying age before figuring it out. If it's cooler out they will often take longer to roost because they are warmer snuggled together in a pile.
Post pix. Maybe I can ID them.
That egg decorating looks like Polish/Slovakian psyanky. Done with egg dye and the designs are covered with wax done in layers as each dye layer is added. Beautiful , exacting work. All the grandmothers used to do it, now it's a dying art..literally.
Hey! Where did you get that pic of me????
I saw it months ago. It fits someone else here. My chicks from last year suddenly began roosting after several months. They always slept by the door. Sometimes now a few sleep under the roost. The Leghorn chicks have been roosting since two weeks with the Old English chick. The Cochin just started at four weeks. Some people just put them on the roost every night.
I may be up for a jaunt
Just because you friended me on facebook and unfriended me does not make me a monster...
thats because they're like me, too heavy to get their fat butts up on the perch
Interesting! she said an old-timer taught her when she was little!
