    I posted a few pictures of some ducklings I bought at a local Amish farm the Saturday before Mother's Day. The man said they were a couple of days old at the time, said they were mixed. Now they are around 6 or 7 weeks old. Any ideas what these guys might be or mixed with? Not sure if they are male or female. Either way, I just love them. My daughter has taught them to catch their treats. Silly ducks!

    [​IMG] I have no idea what kind of ducks you have since I'm new to ducks myself. But, they are sooo cute! I love the one waiting for the Cheerio [​IMG]

    The brown one is a Rouen or Mallard hen and the white is possibly Pekin mixed.Maybe a little magpie in her or if she was mated with mallard or Rouen she might have gotten the dark spots from them.They are both gorgeous Congrat's.Maybe someone else has a different idea.I have raised Pekin, Ancona,Cayuga,Swedish, Magpie,Mallard Rouen, Khaki, Runners and lot's of color's of crested's.They can make some nice looking mixes sometimes .

    The lighter one looks like an Ancona and the darker one a Dark Campbell to me. [​IMG]

    I am thinking Rouen/Khaki Campbell and Ancona/Pekin. [​IMG]

    What gorgeous markings Penny has on her face... Hard to say what gender for sure from the photos...But I think you may have Desmond right as a male- But unsure about little Penny. have you noticed any kind of voice change in them yet??

    I could be wrong, but that dark one is a dead ringer for my Kahkis at that stage. And from that light coloring on the bill, I would say it is a drake as well. What a totaly cutie!!! The white is gorgeous, I love his/her markings!!
