So last night while in the Tractor Supply picking out pullets, I couldn't resist going to the duck bin as well. I asked the lady if they knew what breeds were in the bin and she said that all of them were Mallards. Argh! No, they weren't all Mallards. I don't know duck breeds very well, but I know enough to be able to tell that. Or at least I think I do, ha! So please correct me if I'm wrong, and I did indeed bring home two Mallards. I'm hoping the little black one is a Cayuga or a Runner. The yellow one though....maybe an Ancona? I just hope, despite the breed, that I ended up with two females. I got lucky on the last two and ended up with a male and female. The male turned out to be a Khaki Cambell and the female I'm guessing is a Rouen or Rouen/Mallard mix. She's a good egg layer whatever she is.
So I had to edit the photo with the black duckling to show him a little better. He is so dark he comes out as a black blob in my pics. There is maybe a very faint bit of yellow fluff on his chest, but it is really hard to see. Bill and legs are completely black.
Here are Stella and Sam, just now a year old.
