    I think you are going to have a problem. 3-5 females for each male is a good average for ducks. Your females will get ganged up on and get hurt. I would definitely get more girls or re-home some males.

    Well I am the proud mama of 6 khaki Campbell ducks. I was in Tractor Supply picking up chick food....and guess what they had! So, unexpectedly home with 6 ducklings. Two hours later they are cozy in their little brooder that was rapidly thrown together for them. :lol:

    I knew she was going broody when she stopped laying eggs in the nest boxes. She has been an excellent egg layer since she started last fall and then a few weeks ago there was no egg. After a week without eggs I tried searching for her nest but had no luck what so ever. She was still out free ranging with the chickens and then when she disappeared 2 weeks ago I knew something was up. She would come out at dinner time to eat and go for a swim with her mate and then disappear behind a huge bush that is up against the house. I knew she had a nest in there but didn't want to get cut up from all the thorns on the bush. Yesterday I heard her quack and was able to locate the nest and get a quick picture of her.

    As for incubating the eggs I have had very good luck with them. I usually keep the humidity in the low 40's for the first 25 days and then in lockdown I up it to the low 70's. I use a Sportsman incubator so they are upright from start to finish.

    [​IMG] They are so cute! Had they been sexed so you know what you have?
    Our Grange CoOp had KC's for sale, but I had to wait 2 days until the paycheck came in. By the time I went back they were all gone [​IMG] so I will have to wait until my Silver Appleyards are ready at Holderread's.
