    Dear Fellow Animal Lovers/breeders/farmer, i would really appreciate if you guys could help me identify my duck breed (especially the female ducks since i am trying to know how till they be laying their eggs). I have been reading endlessly about which ducks are best for meat and eggs, and i wanted eggs more than meat, i think i have a breed that is not fond of laying eggs....as i have seen none. My ducks are penned up for most of the day and night and only let out for an hour twice a day under vigilance as it is winter time, and plus there are many wild cats around. Help me!!![​IMG]

    Beautiful ducks it looks like you have all mixed breeds, maybe a dusky rouen in the bunch but I don't see a white ring or anything on him so I'm not sure.

    is that good for egg production???
     

  8. If it is in fact a Khaki mix then possibly yes. Khakis are excelent egg layers. But it is going to boil down to what breed it is mixed with.

    Looks like maybe Pekin mixed in with the one blk/white love the smiling faces. they along with KC would make an excellent egg layer. Give them plenty of bedding, shavings mine love and they will make their own nest for laying. They sure look healthy and happy.
