    i'm so excited! my 2 scovy ducklings have ended up being a male and a female [​IMG] i've just recently been able to tell. i was really hoping they weren't going to end up being 2 drakes!

    thanks! i know that usually there are more males to females in one clutch of eggs so i didn't have my hopes up too high [​IMG] imagine my surprise when i got 1 of each! especially since there were only 4 that hatched from my dad's hen. the day they hatched i went over and picked to to take home and keep as back yard pets/companions. can't believe the odds that one of them ended up being a little girl [​IMG]

    Your so lucky! And im very happy for you!

    I sold all of those ducks except the rouen drake, the khaki campbell drake, and the rouen hen. And then today I traded my calls for two khaki campbell hens. So now I have three hens and two drakes. I also have 3 female welsh harlequin girls and 1 welsh boy. And 2 rouen duckling girls. The welsh ducks are all ducklings though. I love my ducks they are so awesome! Im still so excited that you got a breeding pair. Now you can hatch little babies!

    Quote:i do feel very lucky! my dad's hen has had two hatches so far, and only one hen came out of each. when i went to pick these two up i just took the two that hatched the most recent so they would bond with me. it was like a one out of 4 chance i picked the one that was a girl! what are the odds [​IMG] anyway they are both my little babies i love them to death and they are soooo spoiled [​IMG] i think my dogs are jealous because they go everywhere with me when i'm home [​IMG] never had ducks before and can't believe how much they act like dogs, sitting in my lap and cuddleing and everything! i'm in love [​IMG] sounds like you have quite a few ducks they must be so much fun because i only have these two and they're a hoot! can't imagine what a whole flock is like, must be entertaining [​IMG]
