My Ancona Ducks for 2017.
Your eggs include all 7 basic feather colors.
Black, Chocolate, Blue, Silver, Lavender, Lilac and Tri-Color.
This photo is 18 ducklings that were hatched from the ducks in the below photos. It was taken by Nancy in Lake Orion, Michigan.

"18 out of the 20 fertile Ancona Duck eggs hatched. :) :) :) Here are their colors: 3 Black, 2 Chocolate, 3 Silver, 2 Lavender, 8 Blue. We are adding the ducklings we hatched from your eggs this year as our newest bloodline to our flock." -Nancy in Michigan

Ancona duck eggs take 28 days to hatch. Chickens take 21 days.

All of the photos on this page are from the breeding stock for eggs you receive in 2017.

This photo is a group of Anconas by their black plastic "pond".

This group includes some Black and White Anconas, and 2 Tri-Color drakes.

On the left is a Silver and White Ancona hen. Silver is a very light gray. That color is rare.

Almost all of my Ancona ducks. This photo was taken in February.

Ducks love anything wet: water, rain, snow, mist, fog!

"The 11 ducks that hatched were awesome and hardy. Last summer they had multiplied to about 50 (from 3 females)! My 3 sons were endlessly entertained and enraptured." -Dakota, Weippe, Idaho
