    I am wondering what the 2 White ones are. One is pure white and the other is a White/Blueish color. They are the same exact size as the 2 mallards. They are WAY smaller than the Cayugas. Quackers is the white one, which I thought he was white pekin. Well, he turned 1 this year and he is a boy. The blueish/whiteish one is a female. Let me know what you think.

    Maybe call mixes?

    I was told the Blueish one was a Call Duck. But the white one came from TSC. If that helps any. :)

    And Quackers was a yellow baby.

    Perhaps Pekins? If you got them from TSC, who knows. They are as cute as they can be. : )

    Just the solid white duck is from TSC. I thought he was a pekin, but he is way to small to be a pekin.

    Could it be a white mallard? I have a few of those. I thought they were pekins, but then they stopped growing.

    That is what I was thinking. But I wasn't sure. Do White Mallards start out as yellow ducklings? And the other a possible snow mallard mix?

    Mine started off as yellow little cuties. Im not sure about other mixes, but mine were definitely yellow and definitely are white now. here's a picture for some reference.
    Any resemblance to yours?

    Quackers looks just like that. Not much info on the White Mallards. :/
