Hi all! I had two ducklings hatch and seven and a half weeks ago. Momma was a bei, daddy a call. I do line breed my calls, but the parents of these two werent related at all since parents are different breeds sothe ducklings are mutts,lol. The eggs were her first two, so pullet eggs. And momma had a habit of ditching her eggs half the day so after a few weeks I stuck the under a serama hen who was a proven good mom and setting her own eggs. Her eggs hatched first, so the ducks went in the bator for lockdown. They hatched and looked great at first. Then the blue duckling has slowly been falling behind ever since. Besides being tiny, he's still all downy while sis is almost all feathered. I've asked several trustworthy duck peeps what I should expect, and I've heard she'll catch up, eventually die, etc. So, just thought I'd see if anyone else has peanut experience and how its turned out.
