What breed are my ducklings?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I purchased these 2 ducklings at a store that is supposed to only carry blue Swedish, Rouen, mallard, Pekin, and khaki Campbell. The store told me they had only Pekin ducklings and whatever I got, but they don't know the ones I got. They are not any of the breeds the store sells, they look like Pekin ducklings except they all have a small black dot on their head. Could anyone help me identify their breed? I have attached some images below.

Some hatcheries will mark their males with dots on the top of their head. That may be the case here. Because they do indeed look like Pekin ducklings. ­čśŐ

Those are french white muscovies.
