Any ideas?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I got these from a new friend last night. The Mama is a Pekin, and she had 4 drakes - a Mallard (she kept the baby that looked like a mallard), a Pekin, a black and white Runner, and a Cayuga. The mallard and Runner drakes disappeared ūüėĒ I got three yellows which will be Pekins, but the black ducklings with the yellow bibs - any ideas? Thanks!

Looks to be black Swedish, very pretty ducklings  Congrats on your new babies.If the daddy's were all different breeds though not sure if ducklings would be pure, but the blk and yellow sure look to be Swedish. Can't be though. lol
