As you can see now she is almost white (the ducklings, aka the mob, are at the bottom).
Here she is about 5 weeks old. The adult is on the grass she is in the water. You can see the cream color in this picture.
I'm not sure I will get ducklings again. They are WAY more work than I imagined. Glad they are outside now! But love them to death!! Their antics are a hoot. I'll be glad when the two flocks merge (hopefully one day). Unfortunately, the black ones are so much harder to see than the Pekin. I loose them all the time! LOL
We call the 5 ducklings (2 Cayuga, 2 blue Swedish and 1 Pekin, all hens) "the mob". They approach the adult Pekins (hens as well) in a rush, overwhelming with their number, they remind me of the mob attacking someone! LOL The other 2 adults are Miss Waddle, she has a VERY pronounced waddle and Miss Tuoddle, just cause I thought the name was cute! We haven't named the babies individual names yet. Still trying to figure out their real personalities. So far, all I see is aggression from the Cayuga. They are continually approaching the adults with their head down and beaks open. I figure one day the adults will take them down a notch or two, they deserve it! LOL
The 2 with the crests on top are the Cayuga at 6 weeks. The blue Swedish (which I think are Black Swedish) are the ones with no crest. I have a total of 7, you see one of the adults behind the pool.
Now you know what they look like at babies. They are....black ducks! LOL
