What breed are they?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I'm thinking the one that's different is a mallard. Just can't figure out what the other two are. Their feet are black with a little pink.

The different one is too big to be a mallard, it's probably a rouen. The other too I'm not sure.

I'm kind of wondering myself what I have.  I *think* I have a drake and duck but breed?   Can I declare CUTE BUT STINKY a breed?  :P

The two that look alike look like Magpies! My favorite breed of duck! I really think the other is a rouen or mallard!

They look to be pekins and honestly with ducks you either have to wait for the quack or wait until they are full grown at about 5-6 months to tell the gender, but guessing doesn't hurt :).

Im going to agree with the rouen statement it is much to big to be a mallard duckling at this age.

 

The other 2 look to be magpies.

I was wondering about my little light colored baby here. The other should be mallards. But time will tell. I'm just not so sure about the lighter one.

I would say Ancona's or Magpies! They look a lot like our Ancona/Cayuga crosses that just hatched.

I really think their magpies. I've never seen an ancona with such uniformed coloring in the places magpies have coloring.
