Maybe this fall. Girls still young, boys still snotty to them.
Sorry, all I have are blues and they won't start laying for quite a while yet.
I guess my 2 blues are imprinted on me. They follow me around everywhere and I have to sneak off to get a break. Will they stop doing this when they get older? Sheesh, I hope so. They are as cute as can be, but sometimes I have to do things without them, lol.
I want some blues I just can't seem to find them in my area.
I have one black Swedish (butterscotch) I don't now if butterscotch is a male or female. I call him a boy. he is as big as my jumbo Peking female and has a greenish head. he has never tried to mate as has laid no eggs. he has a low quiet quack. what do you guys think he is? thanks!
Boy. Mine make a whispery, raspy quack, as compared to girls with a louder quack.
Well I saw my first blue Swedish today, in the middle of the road on a busy 55 mph highway of all places! I have one ordered for aug but I've only ever seen black. I'm super excited to get her. I almost picked the one out of the middle of the road but it started taking off when I parked my car and opened the door to get out. I'd hate to see him as road kill. There was also a Muscovy in the road with him but when he saw cars coming he flew off
I have 2 Swedish Blues and 1 Mallard. The Swedes are a little skittish and completely freak if I pick them up. If I take one away from the group, my loud-mouthed one (Spot) squeaks like a maniac.
This was their first outdoor excursion last Sunday (6/9/13)
This was when I first got them - they were about a week old.
Again - one of the first pics I took of them after I first got them.
ok you can hear my female peking from very far away but not him. thank you.
Ya, I'm surprised too how quiet ducks are. My male is whispery and gosh, the girls are louder! Glad it's not that way with the human species!
