That is a pretty duck!

I love Magpies...unfortunatly they aren't the most common ducks.

Which duckling is the magpie? I don't know what they look like. But my Chip looks just like the yellow and black.

The yellow and black duckling is the magpie. Is Chip the little guy that everyone decided was an ancona? To be honest, I don't really know how to tell the difference between a magpie and an ancona. If they have a solid black back, does that automatically make them a magpie?

I have four little magpie ducklings -- they are about 13 days old now.  They have seemingly quadrupled in size over the last week.  Can anyone tell me what their growth rate is? How soon can I expect them to be fully grown?

My magpie, Plucky. She is the leader of the group. I noticed she is the first to do things, a little bolder than my other breeds.
