    Does anyone on here have them? I really want to get some of these little guys. I think they're absolutely gorgeous! Where did you get yours and are they as difficult to hatch out as call ducks? I'd also love to see pics if anyone has any! Thx [​IMG]

    They also sell adults too though they might be a little too expensive if you live far away.

    i have 8 eggs that were shipped to me from california, from feather acres farm. all 8 are developing well. [​IMG] not sure what i will do if all 8 hatch. i thought with them being shipped that not all would be developing, i was very surprise when i candled and all were going strong.
