    We went to the Central Fl BYC Swap this past Saturday. Just looking to downsize our herd, ended up coming home with 2 hens and 5 CUTE ducklings! The little dark one almost died when I got him home, luckily I saved him and he is just the cutest one!

    Ducks are so cute! (and smelly- but we'll focus on that later) For treats, I fed my baby Muscovies houseflies! Gobbled them up like candy!

    LOL I had to PM her to ask!

    The breeds of the "designer" ducks are Campbell, Buff, Swiss, and Caygagu ( i know spelled wrong) with crested in the genes... By the way the biggest duck was 8 days old and all 4 of the smaller ones were 5 days old on Saturday even the tiny one.

    Oh they got some small pieces of lettuce to eat. They are not sure what it is though!​

    So this does not bode well for me. I am planning to attend the Feb. swap to downsize by 6 hens. Wonder what I will come back with?
