    My duckies are coming on Wednesday too. I order them from McMurry. I got 7 of the hybrid layers and 3 jumbo pekins. I am so excited.

    Here are a few I took just yesterday, everyones first trip outside. So it just goes to show you that you can use those decorative fences when all your flowers are dead! [​IMG]

    Pekins are 7 weeks, cayugas (black) are 4 weeks, and rouens (brown) are 3 weeks. I didn't hatch the rouens, but I did the others!
