    Hey guys. I am looking for fertiziled duck eggs of any kind. For the past 3 years I have been raising ducks with my father. This year the batch I received all have died :( terrible watching it happen. So does anyone have any duck eggs they would offer up to me? My ducks mean everything and i would love to have more this year!

    I'd love to be up there in purple...Jossielyn.
    I also need to post pictures. I'm in the process of building their new coop. I'll post pictures. It'll be 4 by 8 with a water feature. Excited to get it done!

    I was listening g to my runners today. And I hear 1 female out of the bunch... not real sure.. but there might be another. They are still finding their voices.

    Our 2 older ducklings are doing the same thing. Funny little sounds. Possibly 1 boy and 1 girl. The 4 younger ones are doing great too. Starting to move a little farther from mom while keeping her in sight.
    Today we have cross breed ducks hatching, 3 last night and lots more pips this morning. We aren't keeping them though.

    Aw that's cute. I'm a bit gutted out of my 5 runners I hatched in April one that I thought was a girl started quacking like a boy. So that's 3 boys and 2 girls. Poop. Don't know what to do with them. They are so lovely. Maybe they won't know what hanky panky is and they can stay!

    They grow so fast. I had to separate Clyde yesterday when I found him trying to mate one of the older babies.
