    So very sorry, but I don't see why she wouldn't be safe to eat. You know exactly why she died and I don't think it is bad at all to consume her.

    So sorry for your loss and I agree with the others. I think it will be an honor to her memory.

    Here they are, 4 chiltern whites, one mallard and one Rouen I think, I'm not sure. They were swimming in the paddling pool, they were 2 weeks old, not day olds.

    Cute

    I was wondering how reliable the "quack" sexing is... At just shy of 3 weeks I have only one duckling that isn't quacking.

    I can't really remember, but I don't think u can tell at 3 weeks, I think u have to wait till they're about 3-4 months old
