    Trying to figure out what type of ducklings they had at my TSC.
    Couple of the smaller ones looked like mallards but were a bluish color [​IMG]
    I think some blue/black swedish.
    And then the bigger yellow ones which are pekins I believe.

    They had some differen't colors ones which were hard to decribe... Had like a greyish body with the top of it's head dark brown? [​IMG] no clue

    So down to the point Anyone got pictures of the ducklings they got from their TSC this year? If I could figure the breeds out I might be able to get 2 or 3.

    Thanks so much

    My local TSC had crested Swedish (blue & black), Khakis, Pekin, Rouen or mallard, and today I had another look and they had black that I missed yesterday so im assuming they are Cayugas.

    Quote:Hmm... Must be them! Look exactly like a regular mallard duckling (even smaller than the pekin ducklings) except with the bluish/gray instead of the brown... Might have to pick up a couple then!

    Any idea on how to sex them when their young? I was told the males kinda of squeak and the females have more of a quack?

    The voices sound the same for the first few weeks- it not until they are at least three weeks or so old before you can start to hear changes. Vent sexing is the most accurate way at day old- but you really need to know what you are doing so you dont injure the duckling.

    Our TSC sold out in less than 3 hours. I couldn't believe it. And they don't know if they're going to get more in or not.
