Ancona Ducks- ISO and Where to Find
Ancona Ducks- Facebook:
Follows Dave Holderread's breeding guidelines. See “Storey’s Guide to
Raising Ducks”. This is a non-APA (American Poultry Association) Ancona
group. There is no APA-accepted standard for the Ancona. We strive to preserve
the original "Holderread" lines. We do not agree with the proposed standard.
It would require culling Anconas which have any plumage colors other than
black and white, and culling Anconas which lay any egg color other than
white. Decreasing the gene pool and genetic diversity in an already-rare
breed is a recipe for a disastrous decrease in health and vigor.
Wants American Poultry Association breed standardization of only black/white
feathers with white eggs. Anconas have many varieties. Each color is a separate
variety. The same holds true for all breeds of poultry. Many breeds having
many varieties accepted by the APA. Each variety is a separate project and
has to be admitted individually. Tri-color Ancona ducks will not be allowed.

Hen Successfully Hatches Duck Eggs
You can see
an unhatched green Ancona duck egg under the hen. Four ducklings hatched.
Duck eggs take 4 weeks to incubate. Chicken eggs take 3 weeks to incubate.
These ducklings are 1 day old. They are happy with their chicken mom.
today. Two look really good, one iffy. I am so happy! I really wanted a
house duck for a pet. I already have the diapers. I have 2 females and 1
male outside, but weather is too cold for fertile eggs. I love the Ancona
ducks, so friendly, and hope to have more. They lay even in the cold."

Duckling with Hen
more ducklings under this broody hen. She is a good mother.
It is funny to watch a hen when she sees her "chicks" going in water to
swim. She must think they have lost their minds.
Hen with Duck Eggs
A nice video
duck eggs being put under a broody hen from Kristi in Bluffdale,
Utah. Her hen is a Silver Lace Wyandotte. At first the hen does not want
to be disturbed, then she sweetly tucks the eggs under her. The video is
2 minutes, 46 seconds. The end is the best.
Hen with Duckling
with the duckling under a mamma hen is from Cynthia at Elderflower Farm
in Talent, Oregon. Yes, chickens can hatch duck eggs!
Hen with Her Flock of Ducklings
hen with ducklings. It is 2 seconds long. She hatched these
eggs! She may be confused by how they look. The movie is from Valerie in
San Mateo, California.
Duckling in Nest
is from Allison in Citrus Heights, California. She said: "They are perfect."

took Lisa’s unfertilized eggs (a Muscovy duck) from her and put the Ancona
eggs under her without much objection. She has a lovely down lined nest.
She had a mate who had an unfortunate habit of devouring his children. He
made a great soup. I'm hoping Ancona ducks are more sensible." -Gwen,
