    I got these from a new friend last night. The Mama is a Pekin, and she had 4 drakes - a Mallard (she kept the baby that looked like a mallard), a Pekin, a black and white Runner, and a Cayuga. The mallard and Runner drakes disappeared [​IMG] I got three yellows which will be Pekins, but the black ducklings with the yellow bibs - any ideas? Thanks![​IMG]

    They look exactly like our cayuga/pekin crosses looked when they were ducklings. :)
