    So I set a bunch of chicken eggs a while back in my incubator, right?

    Some came from a nest one of my brats hid on the ground, no big deal.

    Well, this hatched.

    Looks like my poor late Khaki Campbell hen snuck an egg into that nest.

    We're going to turn it into a pet, it sure is a cute little bugger. The daddy would have to be a Saxony drake, seeing as the only other drake I have is a Muscovy and he lives on the pond with the geese.

    What a sneeky little duck but a cute little surprise! Very cute little duckling! I have seen many chick mixes but ducks are not as common:) It will be cool to see how the little one turns out.

    I think it's a special breed that only hatches out on the first day of the forth month of the year! [​IMG]
