My goodness they grow so fast! Such cuties! :love

 

From what I can see, it looks like she's feathering in like a mallard, right? But she's a lot bigger even though she's younger?

Yeah, my WH I feel like overnight starting sprouting her wing feathers all of a sudden. My youngest is the KC. I think based on rate of progression and size, that Luke is third eldest, from what we can see so far, it looks very similar to the sibling Chewy in the feathers that have started, our Rouen/or Mallard at top of picture in back. I think our best guess was that she is a mix maybe of KC and R/M? Someone else mentioned a hybrid breed but we are not sure. Luke also seems to be the one who is the least shy and interacts with me most on purpose without me initiating it. Last night, it was a contest between our Pekin Han and Luke to see who could lay right beside me on couch, they ended up being side by side against me. :love

I love all the names, lol. So you have Chewy, Han, Luke - what about the KC and WH?

I have a friend who has Pekins and she swears they are the friendliest breed. Of mine, my Welshies are the most tame, with Roxy the runner as a close second.

I think I said it earlier, but I feel even more sure now that you have a mallard and not a rouen after seeing Han and Chewy together.

Momma to 8 ducks - Rocky, Dexter (male mallards);  Ruby Sue (female mallard); Tony (male buff); Roxy (female fawn and white runner); Dorothy, Blanche, and Rose (female Welsh Harlequins); and 2 kitties, Maggie and Fuffy-cat.

RIP Bullwinkle and Turkey-duck :(

Han is the Pekin, Chewy mallard or rouen (either way im happy), Luke is the mix, KC is Wicket and WH is Leia, but depending on the sex, Luke and Leia may switch haha.
