    Two sides to this post. 1st. I got a duckling at easter from TS. Black Swede. She grew up to be some sort of black swede call duck...the duck can fly. High. She is very small, kind of like a call duck. Lays little greenish eggs. I have no idea what kind of duck she is. I also have Jumbo Pekins. So the jumbo decided even though he is 12lbs and she is 2lbs..he wants her...and he got her.

    Forward to case #2. I have a chocolate runner, Cocoa Puff. She is outdoor during the day and indoor in a big tub at night. She is a people ducky. Every morning when the sun comes up she quakes to wake me and I shove her out the front door. This morning she did not wake me. I woke and she was sitting on eggs in her tub. As lazy as I am...I did not remove the eggs...6 built up and I guess she decided...Hey...I want babies. So she is in my room sitting on eggs. I went out and saw one of the small greenish eggs from the unknown species of Swedish call ducks...knowing it was fertilized by the jumbo pekin I put the egg under Cocao Puff. She is now
    laying on her 6 plus the green one.

    Now...to make a long story kind of short......Cocoa Puff is the chocolate runner...mated with a jumbo pekin......The little 2lbs flying swede or whatever mated with the jumbo pekin. Any clue what in the hell is going to hatch?

    Nope, we never know which ones will hatch, or what they will look like.[​IMG]

    Is the little call okay? I would think that union would be potentially fatal for her. I can see how much you care about your ducks, they sound like quite the crew! I would just try to protect the girls.
