I'll post pictures of my old pekins later today... (I'm at school)

But I must say they were the loudess ducks I have EVER had...

But they are very peaceful looking walking on the green grass in the summer time

Quote:Hey BantyHugger, did that moma pekin hatch them by herself?

Yes she did. (And the boys were just button poppin proud!) In that pic all but 2 are pure pekin *the others are 1/2 buff* and they are in the isolation unit so that nothing will hurt them. The first year she set in July (a terrible time to set in Texas) and only 1 duckling made it. The next spring she set in March and we got the 10 little beauties. She is setting again this year and she has 14 eggs. I'm hoping for a dozen little ones.




ETA: This will be my first year owning an incubator and I'm gonna start learning with chicken eggs not duck. All duck hatching depends on my girls setting.
