    Most of the hatcheries will have pictures of ducklings on the breed pages. Metzer has a very basic color ID chart. http://www.metzerfarms.com/SexingBirds.cfm?CustID=1399626 But it can start to narrow it down. They only have the breeds that they sell listed.
    If you are trying to figure out what you have in an assortment, go to the hatchery's website to see what breeds they sell. If you purchased from a feed store, call and ask them who they get their ducklings from and then find out what that hatchery sells.

    This is awesome! Thanks for putting this together. We just had 6 mixed breed duck eggs from Metzer farms hatch, and we are busy trying to identify them.
