    Got these two ducks at auction. Not sure what the breed is. Could they be khaki campbells or runners? Anyone have a guess? Or a guess on sex? I am thinking neither is a drake... no flip up tail feathers. I could be wrong.

    It looks like they could be blue runners. Do they have a loud quack or a raspy voice?

    One is loud and the other is raspy and a little meeker. They do almost sound hoarse.

    That sounds like you could have a pair.

    The loud one indicates a female, raspy indicates a male.

    Though I would watch them. It looks like the smaller one still has down which means it is still young. If that's the loud one it could end up raspy once it matures which would mean its a male, not a female.

    The smaller, blue one, looks like a blue runner or possibly a cross.
    The bigger one looks like a chocolate runner, cross as it doesn't look to be a pure runner.
    Definitely not khaki campbells though. They are the wrong color and wrong body/head shape

    They look Runner shape to me but that color looks somewhat similar to my light KCs. I guess a mixed breed for each. I think after a molt and some care and health their appearances might improve too.

    Small one is the raspy one. The bigger one is the loud one. They are such sweet ducks. My kids absolutely love them.
