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?

 

 

THIS ONE IS A BUFF DUCK

 

Multi colored feet, and has almost a dilute color pattern like a mallard duckling.

GOLDEN HYBRID 300

 

This one has solid dark feet.

ANOTHER GOLDEN 300

 

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?

ROUEN

 

 

 

ANOTHER BUFF

Just a few follow up photos.  Definitely have some Jumbo Pekin LOL  These are BIG ducks.  I also think I got a high percentage of girls, which is good.  Looks like the final breeds are the Pekin, Rouen, Khaki Campbell and Buff.  I'm bummed that none are Runners, but I guess that just means I need to order a few more :-)
