I love Mr Big!

Boy-oh-boy! We have been assuming this for a while but at four weeks of age, it is becoming more and more obvious: One of our supposedly both female ducklings is a drake!

This girl-duck must be a boy-duck: His beak is green, he is double the size of her and he is extremely loud. Yes, just like human boys ...

I guess sexing day old ducklings is not a 100% science. Here you can get some more insight into this ...

The problem is, I really dig Mr Big; he is a keeper!

So, you guessed it: when life deals you a bunch of lemons... or a drake that you did not want...

And after researching a bit I found out that there are not many Khaki Campbell breeders in California. Hmmmmm ... !?!?
