    Day 8 candling pic, all 9 eggs are coming along nicely.
    iPhone flash lights are also handy for candling... Though not what I used for that picture. I'm using this hatch a batch app, it's pretty neat, sets reminders in the calendar on my phone... Today is day 9, 32% developed, organs are forming :D

    hi guys,
    ive been wanting to hatch out some more little ducklings, but am stuck on the breed. ive already got 3 indian runners and love them but they are untame and are really skittish.

    ive been looking into mallards and welsh harlequins and they seem alright. im wanting something that is friendly and can fly and that's also pretty :) so if anyone has anything to say about these to dcuk breeds or has another breeds people tell me

    I don't really know a thing about either of these breeds I'm going to mention, but Apple yards are beautiful and so are black Indie ducks... Lol... I might even have the names a little bit wrong!

    Welsh harlequins can't fly. I have runners, welsh harlequin, cayuga, white layer and a crested. My runners and the cayuga are the most friendly. The crested is the least but I didn't raise him. My welsh harlequin is not as tame as the others that were hand raised. If you want something that flys you will have to stick with bantam breeds such as Mallards, black East Indies and calls.
