    Hi. I'm new to raising ducks and ordered 300 Hybrid last year from Metzer Farms. I got their 2013 catalog and saw that my ducks look very much like the Rouen. Has anyone else noticed this in their 300 Hybrids?

    I contacted Metzer and they said they could look like Rouens...I'm worried that I actually got Rouens and will only get 1/2 the amount of eggs expected. Attaching pictures of when they were 1 week and today (approximately 6 months).

    Thanks.
