    Actually 2 but I suspect despite the Crest they might be similar?

    We call this 2 week old duckling Boo.

    Another angle.

    And here is her buddy MoMo. They REALLY like each other:

    These 2 also have the sneezes and are sharing a brooder together to keep them away from the others. The are eating and drinking fabulously though. Picking up some Brewer's yeast asap and giving the electrolyte water mix. Hope no one else gets it.

    But back to why I posted. I can not figure out for the life of me what these 2 might be! :\

    ETA:

    Just because of love my Pekins so much:

    It's the markings on their face that throws me- they both have grayish colored eye masks. The crested one has a pink/gray bill with black dots at the base. The one without the crest as a more pronounced eye mask, a more beigy- color mixed in with the yellow and her beak is flat out gray.

    Feed store but I was told they get their ducklings from here http://www.idealpoultry.com/ and they get straight run and whatever is hatched at the time. LOL

    I would guess hatchery quality buff and created buff. They may or may not look like a true buff when they grow out though.
