Well...just for fun I thought I'd share some pictures of the wonderful moments I have gotten on camera of the beautiful Call Ducklings that I breed :D .

Image 1: Nothing better that a nice butt to keep your bill warm :p

Image 2 AND Image 3: This is by far the weirdest form of genetics I have EVER seen in poultry! These 2 out of 6 Ducklings survived a power out for over 8+ hours when they were at day 22 of incubation. Now the two ducklings have one yellow spot and one white spot, both of them have it and it is the same dot on each one. It is mind boggling and the previous hatch had nothing like this all their spots were yellow :eek:

    "Nanny' looks very studious.

    They are lovely little ducklings....I guess the genetics is explained by the two being from the same parents....unusual, though,,

    But the first batch were from the same parents too they all have the same mum and dad, I am sort of thinking the power out had something to do with it :confused: not sure what ...

    I was thinking along the lines of the one sperm and the one egg, and then splitting creating identical twins....but, who knows the power of the mains! (If my theory pertains they will be the same sex)

    Lovely anyway...

    I know nothing about breeding or genetics but those ducklings are ADORABLE!:D I wonder if they will imprint on your parrot/cockateel?
