I'm now fully confident my 7/8 Easter chick/Duckling hatch has been a great ratio. 3 hens, 3 ducks, 1 drake. I thought there was 2 drakes originally, but I guessed wrong. Aylesbury x Campbell's are bloody noisy ducks though lol.

I'm going to sort some pics over the weekend. The drake has beautiful colouring, albeit a wonky wing feather.
