Thread Starter 




Married to an Air Force Captain, living on 50 acres, 5 stocked ponds ( I love my koi and catfish ), 5 horses, 2 kids. ( my dogs), 5 sheep, 4 goats, 1 longhorn, 5 cats. 2 parrots. And I'm very excited to have chickens again ( after 6 years)!
EE's, Tetras, Bantams, Cochin Bantams, Rhode Island reds, buff orpingtons, guineas, and hopefully a lot more!

Those are some cuties.

The black one looks like a Cayuga. The one in the back with the strips over eyes looks like a Rouen. The mixed color ones could be Ancona or Magpie. Could you get more pictures of those two from different angles?

The black one is defiantly a black runner duck. The one with the stripe is a rouen

Striped one is a rouen

Black is likely a cayuga. Could be a black runner (if it stands upright a lot)

The other two look to be magpies based on the solid back and cap

NPIP CERTIFIED! Al's Quackery is a small waterfowl farm in Southern Maine. I raise ducks, ducklings, geese, goslings and sell hatching eggs.
Ducks: Anconas (Black, Blue, Chocolate, Lavender, Lilac and Silver),  Muscovy (barred in black, blue, chocolate and combo, ripples in dark, chocolate, and blue shades, lavenders, and looneys in blue, black, chocolate and lilac)

Call Ducks: pied / magpie...

I'm glad that someone posted and asked about their breeds. I believe I have one crested pekin, one magpie and one Cayuga. I was trying to figure out which the black and yellow duck is. Mystery solved: now I just need to know the genders.
