Okay so the ones you have seen on the internet with the stripe through their eye is prolly a malard, you DONT have those
I would say you have 2 mag pies (the ones with the black dot on their head, we had one but it got eaten then we got one when it was older, it was a drake *sigh* hope you dont have any drakes, they are brats, funny bratsm but brats) and 2 black swedish
they will love swimming more and more as they get older, but watch out for waterlogged duckies, in Valdez the seagulls go in this tray thing where all the fish guts and stuff go, they get stuck and get waterlogged and die :( i rescued one once, but then I found ANOTHER one and i had a net this time (before these 2 nice guys took a shovel and lifted the gull out) and my (mean) grandma wouldnt let me help it!
I hope they are the magpie. They are so pretty. The chicks I looked at on the internet look very similar to mine. I was just guessing a blue swedish for the other two. Didn't realize there was a black swedish. Thanks for the information. I was hoping I would find a list with pictures like the Henderson's chicken list, but no luck!
We are having another beautiful warm afternoon and the duckies are outside in the grass with their pan of water in the sunshine.
I was reading on here not to feed the ducklings chick feeder. I was alarmed because that is what they have had all week. I went to our local TSC and of course they said chick feeder is all they sell for ducks and have for years. I mentioned the lack of niacin and I got the dumb look. So I went by the drug store and got a niacin capsule. Can anyone tell me how much I should use in their water.
