    I just somehow screwed up a whole batch of duck eggs in the incubator. 20 developed, pipped and then died. I was extremely disappointed and I'm not sure I want to do that again anytime soon. So...

    I would like 3-6 ducklings. What I had tried to hatch were Golden Cascades, and that would be my first choice, next I would take Anconas, and I'd consider Cayugas too.

    If anyone near the Quad City area has any of these breeds of ducklings, I'd love to hear from you. Probably a shot in the dark, but I figured I may as well give it a try! [​IMG]

    If you get real desparate I have some cross ducklings for sale. These are all that I have hatched from my own eggs. I currently have 12 that are between a couple days and 2 weeks. I have a black swedish cross drake, a rouen hen ( wild duck hen looking), and a cayuga hen. If you are interested I can send you some pics. I am between Waterloo and Cedar Rapids Iowa. Jenn

    Thank you so much, but I was hoping for purebreds of one of those breeds. I can get some Rouens from my neighbor, which I really like too, but we thought it would be more fun to get something different. I appreciate the offer!
