    I bought some new ducklings today. We have a Buff and a Rouen hen from Spring chick days. We lost the 2 male runners the day after it ended so I promised my boys I would replace them next time I found ducks and ended up buying 5 :rolleyes:

    I think the yellow with the black tail and a spot on its head is a Silver Appleyard. The “eye-liner” on the grey and yellow ones is throwing me off.

    Welsh Harlequins and Blue Swedish, I think.

    That’s kind of what I was thinking but has anyone ever got WH from Tractor Supply? They get their chicks from Hoover Hatchery and I assumed they ordered the Mixed Ducklings. I see Swedish on the list of what could be there, but not Welsh.

    Yellow with a head stripe is a Silver Appleyard! Awesome large breed

    They get their ducklings from other places too. My TSC gets most of its chicks from Ideal.

    I recommend naming one of the blue Swedish Smokey, unless you want an uncommon name

    I was kind of waiting until the girls start quacking to name them. My kids named our buff Clancy and the rouen is Rhonda.

    Seeing if I can imprint them. The appleyard still had an egg tooth yesterday. Like my ducklace? Lol
