hi sjoerd! sorry to have been gone for so long...buzy buzy buzy! i have a bunch of garden pics to post later, too! the duckies will be mainly for their eggs. you know, one chicken egg for breakfast is not quite enough, and a duck egg is like one and a half chicken eggs....just right, imo! we also may butcher a couple. we have to see how many males there are. we need a few to fertilize the eggs...better for you! we should know in a couple more weeks. the 'boys' get a little curly-que type feather over their tails. we can also use them for barter.
