    Well the white eggs are from my buff bunch which I've been told are buff Orpington but idk for sure I bought a pair from someone's flyer at post office and she didn't speak English, I just know I love them. The big green ones are my Rouen hen fathered by a Rouen/buff Orpington, so I'm hoping to get more darker Rouen feathering. And they are all great layers and dress out well which is my original plan for a dual purpose heavy duck.. but even being heavies my drakes can still fly so they have nice wing muscles =) (my brothers, mother's and Grama's favorite part)

    Wait, I am confused. You say buff orpington which is a chicken. A chicken and a duck cant have offspring? Do you mean buff ducks?

    There is a Buff Orpington duck, too. Developed by the same guy who developed the Buff Orpington chicken. A buff duck is a Buff Orpington.

    In my opinion get at least one male and one female WH. They are gorgeous and very friendly. The rest is up to you. I have at least one of quite a few breeds. I just enjoy looking at and communing with all of them.
