What Breed are these cuties?!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 


Hello,
I'm Jenn! I'm very new to raising any type of "backyard birds"! So how did I acquire these cuties? Well a little about me! I am 20, and in school to be a vet tech (house pets, clearly, not very educated on birds aside from knowing how to care for them). I LOVE animals and the whole neighborhood knows it! Unfortunately, that means I am a "dump site" for many unwanted critters! So today I received a box on my door step! I'm used to it I figured it was kittens since kitten season is here! To my surprise it was two little ducklings!! They are so precious! They were shivering and I honestly didn't think they would make it they are so teeny. They only look days old. So, after food, water, pine bedding, and a nice warm lamp they are feeling much better! And I'm so glad that 9 hours later (now) they are doing well! So! I know the picture kind of stinks, they are huddled together. So to describe a little of what you may not be able to see in the picture:

Coloring: Very Fluffly down, brown all over and *slightly* lighter brown on the bellies (by no means would I say yellow, just a lighter brown). The sides of their eyes have a "mask" look to them. There are a couple streaks of *dark* yellow.
Feet: Webbed Feet, tiny toe nails
Beak/Bill: Dark brown bill
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your help! smile.png

They look a lot like my Khaki Campbell ducklings

Could you post a picture with the light turned off? That would make them easier to identify :)

I agree with Papagena. Look like my khaki Campbell's when they were ducklings.

Yay! Thank you! (I LOVEE khaki's) I hope they are! Either way I'm already so in love with these cuties 😍 I could just scoop them up and cuddle then forever!

Oh yes of course! Now inspecting them closer I'm unsure if they are the same breed, hmmm hmm.png but here are the pictures of them!
Both babies:

#2 looks Khaki.
#1 looks too light for Khaki.
If they're from same hatch, maybe they're mix.
Either way they're cute.
I'll even go as far as guessing #1 Drake, #2 Hen...so you'll have to update again in a couple months. ;-)
