just ducky!

We had two batches of Call Ducks hatch out last week. Above is the brood belonging to the Chocolate Bibs we borrowed from a friend of mine to breed, below is a combined hatch from our Black Bib and Blue Bib. The ducklings above and the darker ones below will all be Blue Bibs, while the lighter ones below will be Splashes. (The foreign words are Call Duck colors.)


The past week has just been filled with cuteness....

I fell in love with Call Ducks years ago at the county fair. They are just adorable! Are they hardy or do they need a lot of care?

Alyss, Call Ducks are very hardy and easy to keep -- the only trick is that they are so small that you need to really keep them safe from predators. So they need netting/fencing over their pens, and the babies are so tiny they can fit in through the smallest spaces. But other than that, they are absolutely delightful!
