Hello all! I'm brand new to duck keeping. I've been doing as much research as I can but I don't know what breed of duck I have our how old my babies are. Could someone help me out please? Any advice is really useful as well.

Welcome to BYC!

 

Do they both have yellow on their chest? 

 

They could be black Swedish.

They no longer have any yellow on their bodies. Could they be Indian Runners?

That is a Runner face, seems to me.

They have this blue coloration. Is that normal?

I don't know if it's true with Runner ducks, but alot of black birds aren't completely black, even though it might look like it from a distance. That looks normal to me. It's very pretty.

My Cayugas got their coloring similar to that when they were growing in their feathers. They had yellow chests as babies too.

(About 5 weeks)

 

Could they be Cayugas?
