I ordered the "mix ducklings" from Metzer farms, and am curious if people have any idea of what breeds I got. I know none are crested. From their website
"Mix ducklings are whatever we have available after all specific breeds are shipped. It is our choice of breeds. It is impossible to know exactly what will be in Mixed Ducklings. Normally we are able to include at least three breeds in the mixed. They could be Runners, Rouens, Khaki Campbells, Cayuga, Buff, Blue Swedish, Pekin or one of the layer strains. We have even included the White Crested in the Mix selection at times."
A full list of the breeds they carry is on their website at:
I'll try to get some better photos. Some are the sterotypical solid yellow with yellow legs, I'm assuming those are going to be white as adults?
Multi colored feet, and has almost a dilute color pattern like a mallard duckling.
This one has solid dark feet.
Pretty sure this one is a Rouen, since they didn't list Mallard as one of the breeds they include, but does anyone know how to tell the difference for sure?
