What are these guys?

post #1 of 5

I was given 4 ducks. I know the brown one is a rouen. I don't know what the crested Drake is. He looks like possibly a slate blue swedish? The two white ones I'm confused on also. They do not have orange beak and legs like a Pekin. I have had Perkins in the past and they are definitely not Perkins. Their legs and beaks are a grayish black color. They are basically all a white or dirty white color but have a little black on the tip part of their wings. They are still pretty skittish as of now to get too close. Any guesses?

They look like they could be mixes, perhaps part Welsh Harlequin, or a Pekin-Runner mix.

They don't stand up like runners. I had runners in the past to. I was thinking mixes too but not sure since they came from a feed store.

Here's another pic of them from today. I know the one is a rouen but I'm thinking the crested is a slate blue swedish. I still have no idea on the whites. They have black wing tips and yellow brownish legs and beaks. Either way they are LOVING that the pond is thawed. They came from a little 4x6 coop with 4 turkeys and like 8 chickens.

The crested is a "splash" colored blue swedish (when you mate 2 blues you can get a lighter colored blue known as a splash)

 

The white with colored wing feathers- cross breed for sure. Shes on the small side so I would say she has campbell or harlequin in her. Or a white layer mix.
