Liz, I bought two ducks from tractor supply and really don't know what kind of ducjs tgey are. Just know tgat they came from Mexico. One is much larger ande darker and the other is lite tan. My question is I'm assuming that the smaller duck is a female because it has laid several eggs all over, but there are two eggs in their house and its been over a month! No little duckings yet?


Wednesday 15th of August 2018

If the eggs are just in the duck house with no duck sitting on them incubating them all the time they won't hatch even if they were fertilized. Duck eggs take about 28 days to hatch. One way to tell if you have a male duck, besides coloring, is most male ducks have a "drake curl" - a little curly feather on their tail. Does one of your ducks have that? Have you seen them mating?

Hello Liz! I wrote to you a few days ago about how much I like your soaps. I was concerned about your source of palm oil. As a former environmental science teacher, I learned that palm oil obtained from Africa is harming the ecology of the area. I just wanted you to be aware of this so you can choose sources (you may already do this) that uses sustainable practices. Here is one link to information.

Hi Carol! I did respond to your comment on the “about” page, but perhaps you didn’t see it? The palm oil that I use in my soaps is Certified Sustainable Palm Oil, and my supplier is on the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm. They are a group dedicated to environmental, ethical and socially responsible palm oil farming practices. I love when consumers are informed on ingredients, so thank you so much for your questions! ?
