Not sure he looks like a Muscovy? The grey and spotted chest one, what are your opinions? I have 2pekin ducks both females. 2mallards a boy and girl and I am questioning what the grey one might be consider? The boy mallard with the green head and the grey spotted chest one is a boy. 2boys 3females

It's not a Muscovy.  Mallard derived of some sort - possibly a crossbred.

In the picture it looks dark but since you called it grey I'm going to guess it's a Blue Swedish, though the markings wouldn't be considered show quality. But that would only matter if you are showing it or breeding to breed standard. It could also be a crossbreed, but it defiantly has some Swedish in it.

 

All in all a very handsome boy. :D

It may be a mismarked blue Swedish or a crossbred.  I had similarly colored offspring from a Rouen/Pekin cross.

Do you have a picture @sourland? Would love to see so we can compare.

 

@eLiz423 where did you get them? I'm thinking it was from a feed store. It that's the case I'm thinking there's a better chance you got a mismarked Swedish rather than a crossbreed. Hatcheries aren't as concerned about breeding to standard but they do generally keep the different breeds separate. Or at least they should try really hard.

Yes got these guys from Tractor Supply. Can you see him better in those pictures above?

So my crested Pekin brood a duckling that has the same kind of markings of this guy but crested. This is very exciting. Here is a picture of the baby on day 1. I will try to get a better picture of it as soon as I can

Look at that little poof! So cute.

 

Yes this pictures show his color better. My opinion is still that he is a Blue Swedish.
