    Hi all! So here's the official thread of my soon to be ducks! I wil be updating this thread frequently about the status of the ducks!

    February 17: I mailed the order form in today, I'm getting 2 Black and White Magpie drakes and 6 ducks! I ordered them from Johnson's Waterfowl (www.johnsonswaterfowl.com) and they should be here on March 23!

    Very exciting!! Your "tags" didn't work for some reason. You'll get a little pop up of user names when you're typing a tag correctly (choose/click the name you're looking for) and once finished, the letters will turn blue. I haven't place my order yet, but I'm hoping for a delivery at the end of April. How did you choose Magpies? I love them and Anconas.

    Here, hope you don't mind, I'll do those tags from above.

    Thanks Deb! I picked Magpies because they lay lots of eggs, are pretty, and there are only 9 breeders in the US. What are you getting?

    Happy to help! Magpies are definitely pretty!! Here's what I'm hoping for (all females)...

    2 Anconas (first choice), Magpies or Black Swedish
    2 Welshies
    2 Pilgrims

    Problems is I can't find a seller that has all 3 of my choices that will sex them and sell 2 female geese. Still looking! [​IMG]

    The only hatchery can think that sex their anconas is Cackle where you can buy a trio fro 63$. They also have Welshies. If you got from Metzer you could Black Swedish and Welshies and either a pair of pilgrims or SR pilgrims. You could also get from Johnsons, They have magpies and silver Appleyards which are kind of like Welshies. And they have African geese but I would definitely prefer Pilgrims. Cackle also has good quality blue and black Swedish and it would be the same for the anconas. You can see I have done quite a bit of research! www.cacklehatchery.com www.metzerfarms.com www.johnsonswaterfowl.com

    LOL...you sound like me! Thanks for the ideas. Now I'm thinking maybe Welshie girls won't work even though I think they're beautiful. I have one large Pekin drake. I'm worried he'll be too much for Welshie women. [​IMG] It's funny you mention that because as I was sitting outside watching the ducks today (thinking maybe I can't have WH) I was wondering if Saxony or Silver Appleyards would work. They both seem to resemble WH, don't you think?

    Debs: whatever you get as your new ducks, they will be super cute. Because they are ducks.
