About a month ago, I got four Australian Spotted ducklings from Holderreads. I was wondering, do I have three Blueheads and one Greenhead or are they all Blueheads like Holderread said.



Thanks all!

I know nothing about this breed, but wanted to check in
and say congratulations!

And one does look a little different from the others.

Sweeties!

Thanks Amiga!

Kevin565: Really? I thought it was the other way around. The three I thought were blue heads are significantly lighter than the other, and they look like the pictures of the blue heads on Holderread's website. The reason why I am confused about the dark one is because it looks lighter than the green heads on Holderread's website. He said they were all blue heads, so...

Thanks for replying you guys!

Okay I just changed the brightness of my computer and I think your right. The middle one does look darker than the others.

You defiantly have a justifiable concern. I would email these pictures to see if they also believe there was a wrong duckling sent. Also, I truly apologize for my completely wrong post. Hope you can get this problem solved!

Oh, don't worry about it!
They're supposed to be TSQ, so I guess I'll wait and see what happens when they feather out. If it ends up being a green head I'll email then. Thanks Kevin565!

Hello! How did they turn out? We are thinking about driving down and getting a few TSQ spotted ourselves. Did you show them successfully? Please do share all about it! :):D
