    I am not sure if my three ducks are thin or not!? Their chests are m-shaped (their chests go out-in-out), Thanks!

    They look normal for their age. They will fill out a lot in the next couple of weeks. Are you giving them free access to food all day?

    They are perfect little ducklings with cleavage.

    If they were thin you would see the opposite. Pronounced keel bone and no breast meat.

    So is that a rouen, a welsh harlequin, and a cayuga?
