    soo im having a tough time deciding what breed of duck i want to try and hatch, soo im just gonna ask for a mix-up of dif breeds [​IMG]
    i reallyyy like pekins, runners, cayugas, swedish, and east indies!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    help me out PUHHH-LEAAASEE
    oh yeah, and i kind of want people more towards the North-East part of the US, where i'm from Maine, because i feel more comfortable having eggs shipped when they dont have extremely far to travel [​IMG]

    I have some eggs available, $8 for a dozen plus calculated shipping.

    My flock consists of 7 Pekins, 4 Rouens, and 2 Runners. The Pekins are 2 drakes (1 is crested) and 5 ducks, though 1 of the ducks is currently broody. The non-crested drake has the broody duck and another pekin duck as 'his' girls. 2 of the Pekin ducks are in love with my blue Runner drake, so their eggs would be mixed. The other Pekin duck hangs in a group with the crested Pekin drake and the Rouen drake. 2 of the Rouen ducks are currently broody, the other Rouen duck is also in the crested Pekin and Rouen's harem. The Runner duck is broody.

    So you could hatch either pure Rouens, pure Pekins, or Pekin/Rouen or Pekin/Runner mixes. Some of the Pekin/Rouen mixed babies have cute little crests from their crested Pekin daddy [​IMG]

    Let me know if you're interested.

    Edit to add pictures, I don't have any pics of the babies yet but as soon as they load I'll post them too [​IMG]

    Here are some baby pics. These pics are terrible cause you know the camera is going to eat them! But you can at least get an idea of what you'd hatch. And surprisingly the guinea keets were all "hey, how ya doin?" so they're in most of the pics [​IMG]

    Quote:awwhh, your crested pekin drake is SO cute [​IMG] i would loveee to be able to hatch a crested ducky [​IMG] i lovee love love pekins! andd i bet the pekin/runner crosses would be the cutest things everrr! rouens arent really my first choice for duck breeds, but i bet if they were mixed with pekin orr had those amazing crests then i would find them much more attractive [​IMG] lol but gahh, i would loveee to get some of your pekins or pekin/runners for suuureee [​IMG] the only thing throwing me off a little bit is you being a tad far away. i am so nervous about having eggs shipped to me from a great distance away. more chance for the stupid postal people to shake them about and what not and get the air sack detatched or broken or scrambled [​IMG]

    I know I've sent eggs to you before but I can't remember what they were [​IMG] Duck eggs usually take shipping pretty good and I could double-box them if you like to help keep them from getting cracked.

    Quote:It was probably either ducks or button quail, I'm leaning more towards buttons? Looks like shipping would be about $10.
