Any info on these ducks?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
The two white Pekins have been mine for awhile. One drake and one hen. I gave two other drakes away since I bought them unsexed and just purchased two hens from someone. I was told they are both female Khaki Campbells That were born in the spring and are great layers. The only thing I've been able to determine as truth is that they are both female. Both have a good quack to them, no drake feather, etc. I've had them a few days now and they aren't laying. Any idea on age or breed? I just hope he didn't sell me old ducks that are no longer laying. The one appears to be Blue Swedish and the other might be a Khaki Campbell? Those are my best guesses but don't know how to decipher age. Any help would be appreciated.

They are beautiful girls and it is hard to tell the age of a duck especially in a pic. But the reason your not seeing eggs is because they are new to their surrounding.  Give them some time to get settled in and feel like your place is their place. Then you'll see eggs, Maybe not as many as in warm months but in spring they'll start back up laying reg. again.  Be sure to feed them a good quality diet too and keep oyster shell out for them in case they need extra calcium.

Thanks for the reply. I will be patient. Would you agree from the terrible picture I took that the left may be a Khaki Campbell and the right a Blue Swedish?
