The Quacking Family
We have gorgeous Khaki Campbell ducks, Cherry Valley and Call ducks. We hatch some ourselfes which you can see in the pictures below. The Campbells and the Valleys are very good layers and will prety much lay all year round. They all have different amazing personalities.
These are our Cherr valley that we hatched in 2017
This is one of Cherry valley that we hatched all grown up now. She is the one in the middle twisting her head to the side.
This is Jan. Our only pure white call duck. He is actually a male but with a female name as we thought he was a she. he arrived to us in 2016 with his girlfriend Ann. Unfortunately Ann passed away in 2017 so Kelly had to take her role. As you can see she absolutely adores him.

These white ducks are our Cherry valley and the brown ducks are our Khaki campbells.
Check out some interesting facts below about duck.
All ducks have highly waterproof feathers as a result of an intricate feather structure and a waxy coating that is spread on each feather while preening. A duck's feathers are so waterproof that even when the duck dives underwater, its downy under layer of feathers right next to the skin will stay completely dry.
Male ducks have an eclipse plumage similar to females that they wear after the breeding season for about a month as their new feathers grow. During that month, they are completely flightless and more vulnerable to predators. At this time, many male ducks stay in isolated, remote areas or flock together for protection in numbers.
