Pinx, your missing duck might show up with babies in tow. That's what I hope.
I would be so sad if one of mine went MIA. They sometimes wander over to nap with my neighbors goat, Tippy...
I have WH,Penelope and Ida Mae.
A Blue Swedish,Wendy.
A Pekin ,Abby and a Golden 300 named Emmaline.
I'm very excited because they gave us eggs for the first time today!
I have 4 Pekins that are named Sidney, Sheldon, Gabriel (Gabby) and Quinn...just tried to pick names that would work for both girls or boys since I have no idea who is a boy or girl at the moment.... there is no way I could have them for 2-3 months and not name them
My two runner ducks:
Rizling (~"Riesling") duck
Furmint (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Furmint, base grape of the famous tokaji sweet wine) drake
Both of them are mallard colored.
Name choices for the two new ducks planned to come in autumn (to keep Furmint happy and to release some sure-to-come pressure from Rizling):
Kadar Kata (Kata is Kate in Hungarian, also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kadarka), for a brown or black duck
Királyleányka (means "little princess", it is a hungaricum fresh white grape variety from the Eger region) white duck.
Since my chickens are all named after French women, I decided to name all of the ducks after Italian women...they are: Violetta, Rosetta, Luisa, Gioia, Paola, Annalisa, Francesca, Serafina. Two each of Cayuga, Welsh Harlequin, Buff Orpington & Blue Swedish.
In order of pecking....
Pato, Bernice, Oreo, Raisin, Cindy, and lastly....Beeker/Beeks/Baby Beekie. He is the baby
the WH are Trixie and Betsy and the cayuga is Lola
Here are my ducks. This image is from an educational poster we put together for an event last fall:
