    These are my mystery ducklings. Some look like swedish, others look like mallards, and others, well, heck if I know!

    The gray ones with yellow chests (bibs) look like my Blue Swedish ducks when they were babies. The Black ones with the yellow bibs look like my Black Swedish as babies.
    I don't know about the other cuties.
    Good Luck!

    Where did these ducklings come from? I would almost say the light ones(mallard coloring that is dulted) would be buff, but if I knew what the possibilites were It would be easier!

    Oh! Wow, then it is just a waiting game. The Harlequins look like that too... Could even be crosses.

    Unfortunately, I'm not keeping these guys. Since they may be crosses, and since I already have three duck breeds in mind, I just can't keep them. I need to sell these guys just to get the next bag of feed.
