I have 1 khaki. His name is Snickers!
He's cute. Love the mid-quack pic.
It's like he is saying "Hi Ya'll"
I got mine from tsc two years ago. no idea where they get em, I can ask but like I said, two years ago, maybe they changed that is, if they even know where they get em NOW, they dont even know when shipments will arrive at the store, so I dont know anyway
anyway, theyve laid really well, eggs a day for 18 months, just took a two month break to moult for the first time and theyre already back up and running as of last week.
Thats all I got, sorry. hope it helps somehow
Our Tractor Pie gets their birds from Townline hatchery. Thanks! Visiting TSC's "chick" days isn't out of the question, I guess.
I work at a store. I've noticed our Speckled Sussex and Rhode Island Reds came from Privett Hatchery Inc. from New Mexico this week. Not sure if this is where they're all from though!
The individual state of the store may make your mileage vary as well. Petrie and Ducky are from a Pennsylvania Tractor Supply, but Littlefoot and Cera are from a West Virginia Tractor Supply and they are A) much bigger and B) Cera is insane and will lay 2 and even 3 per day although more usually 1 in the slow season. We're hoping to get ducklings from her one day.
wait wait wait what?!?! u said cera will lay more than one egg a day?! Lol I might just not be understanding but....
I've had chickens that would lay like that so I believe it. They were hormonal bullies and eventually prolapsed very badly and had to be culled. Ducks might be tougher and less aggressive so that may not happen, plus you can't stop the egg flood, although I'm sure multiple a day isn't good for them. You just love them because they're yours, I guess. I'm really just hoping for one per day per duck, but the multiple a day birds are still funny. They're like over achievers.
No way. I had no idea chickens or ducks could lay more than one egg a day... my mind is blown...
We questioned it for a while, but now that we're down to 2 laying ducks... I check the coop daily and there was one February day in which the nest had 5 eggs. No possible chance of anything else laying them.
I've asked on this site before if it was any cause for concern, most say it's either impossible or not a big deal. She's definitely the friskiest hen and flirts the most, but our bully duck was actually a slacker in the egg department. At least as far as khaki campbell expectations go.
