We did it. We finally bit the bullet and got ducks. We have contemplated it now for about 2 years. I’m so glad we got them. They are the sweetest creatures ever! We now have 4- 3 week old Khaki Campbell’s and 5- 6 week old Ancona’s. We have had them now for about 2 weeks and i’m already questioning why we didn’t do this sooner!
The Khaki Campbells are excellent layers. They typically lay 300 eggs a year. (Remember, we got 4 and we think they are all hens). And the Ancona Ducks are a rare breed that lay around 210-280 eggs a year. We think these may all be hens as well. So, what does that mean? A lot of eggs coming our way! Of course once we got home I did the duck math and realized that we are going to be up to our ears in eggs between the chickens and the ducks. I can see a “FREE EGG” sign in the yard in our future! LOL
Once we move onto the new property we plan on making them a small pond. Right now they have a very cute kiddie pool, but they definitely need something more. I can’t wait to make our own little Duck Dynasty 😉 The ducks will be as spoiled as the chickens. I am sure of this!
So, if you are like we were and you are thinking about getting ducks…DO IT! You wont regret it!
I’m looking forward to sharing our duck adventures!
