Where abouts are you? if you go into your profile and update your general location or add a nearby pin on the map ppl would have a good idea... it definitely helps with setting up sales...

if my calls do hatch some this spring n summer they will be up for sale as the calls here have a free pass. what do they say? lucky ducks? HAHA I dont breed them intentionally so id say pet quality.

Guelph area. Will do re update my profile for location. I think the kids would afore them and if we hit a fall fair or two it'd be fun.

Success! looks like 2 or 3 ducklings, hard to tell. I didn't think any would with the crazy temps we have had the last couple of weeks. She is under our porch and we will have to lift some boards to get at her and move them in the coop soon.

I have 4 whites (2 male and 2 female) 2 female greys and 1 pied male. They are all laying eggs so I took 12 call eggs and put them under a broody sussex hen. Now I will let them all hatch their own eggs. Should get lots of babies.

Barnyard mix of calls. I have two ducks a white and a snowy and three drakes a grey magpie, a snowy and a mutt from last year...these will all be mutts but should make for some interesting colours.
