    The neighbor has two ducks who have decided to live here. The neighbors don't care. what with the 20 goats, 4 llamas, 5 emus, 5 horses, ? number of free range chickens and 5 geese, what's a couple of free range ducks!!?? So they are staying over here because they know we feed everyone here and they are picking up the scraps (plus, I confess, I've been feeding them because I feel sorry for them).
    My hubby has named them Abbott and Costello for those of you that remember Abbott and Costello! LOL!
    I would like to know a little more about them. I know the small one is a mallard cross probably and they both act like drakes. The stay with my geese all the time.
    Any ideas would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    They look like rouen or crosses of that sort to me...and they look like two males.

    Thanks,

    they both have a soft quack quack but talk ALL the time! They are getting very used to us now and follow us everywhere.

    thanks everyone for all the info. It's nice to have an idea of what they are, since I guess they are going to be living here full time! LOL!

    I'd say they are both purebreeds, but not of the same breed. The smaller one looks like a Harlequin to me.
