    We got these little guys on March 5th, but don't know how old they were when we got them. Picked them up from the local feed store.

    Thanks!

    Their breed is: Cute baby ducks!

    Actually, they do look like runners.

    The second one definitely looks like a runner. Not sure about the first one, the shape and posture are slightly different, maybe more pekin...

    Quote:I agree. The second one is a Runner, but the first is a Pekin... Looks just like my pekins did at that age.

    I took these yesterday. They are getting SO big. We are pretty sure that the larger one is a pekin. Any guesses as to the adult coloring of the smaller duckling? With the stance, we are pretty sure it's a runner of some sort.

    Thanks!

    Bigger one is a Pekin. Runner might be fawn and white??? [​IMG]

    The one with the lighter beak is definitely a Pekin, but not sure about the other.
    Almost Runner-ish, and since they were from a hatchery it wouldn't be impossible for that to be true.
