    Ok, well...these babies came from my little grey duck, Momo. She dissapeared from the nest, and left me 9 eggs to hatch out. Of the 9...8 hatched!

    Great job!! I am so happy for you!! They are absolutely adorable!! Try to get the game starter to at least add to the feed or find out what has niacin in it to supplement so they don't get angel wing. I googled angel wing and it says it mostly happens to males, don't know this from experience. Good luck and please post more pics. Love them. [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone. So far, all seem happy and healthy in thier brooder, out in the garage. In the next few weeks, I will be working on a duck house for them, and a safe pen with a pool. The 4 little grey ones seem to look alot like Mo did, when I got her. [​IMG] Time to clean out the bator, and hopefully I wont have to use it again this year! LOL
