Re: Looking for Khaki Campbells

There are quite a few poultry sales around the country. There is one at Ross-on-Wye on the 2nd March at the livestock market

Have you tried The Britsh Waterfowl Assoc for a list of local breeders, or the Domestic Waterfowl Club. Sometimes local papers advertise them

Re: Blue egg laying duck breeds?

I Had Blue Swedish in the early 1990's and they laid light blue eggs. They are hard to find now though. The egg colour depends on the bloodline.

Some of my calls lay greenish eggs, others lay white.

Re: Speckeldy Hens

my speckledys are down to three now, they are five or six years old but still lay strong in the summer, wonderful birds,I would recommend them to anyone. Started with six but predation over the years has reduced them.

Re: how is it worhwile

EBay eggs used to make quite a bit. But I suppose everyone is doing it now. Its all to do with supply and demand I suppose. Also as you say, the more special they are. The more they make

Re: We have two ducklings

CPL- why not put the other eggs in the bator, if they hatch then quietly put them back under the duck without her noticing once they have fluffed up. We do it all the time with the chickens.
