Bird whisperer A Chick Called Albert says, “When I gave this Silky hen some eggs to incubate, I had no idea what would come out. One contained life, and a sweet little surprise hatched. But can this fancy chicken raise an even fancier duckling? I was curious what species of duck it would turn to be. I wasn’t disappointed…. And then all grown up, together they raised another clutch. Are you able to tell me the species?”
