From duckling to duck

The ducklings we got in September are now fully grown. They aren't laying yet though the two point-of-lay khaki campbells we also got last year are producing eggs. One lays every day, the other on a more occasional basis.

The above photos were taken yesterday in the snow. Three of the ducklings have grown into ducks (none laying yet) but the magpie is a drake and, sadly for him, he will be appearing on our dinner table in the near future.

Golden 300 hybrid layer ducks are great egg layers there hard to find in England but hatching eggs can be brought efowl and shipped to the uk and I think once there hatched there auto sexing
