    Junna is a black magpie, and Jumper is a crested mallard

    Junna is a mayjor camera hog, and Jumper loves to show off, she already looks like shes gonna have a really impressive crest, I sure hope so!

    the little Bronze broad breasted turkey pult is also very camera hoggy [​IMG]

    they're all wierd

    Quote:All Mallard ducklings are marked like that as babiese will eventually look like the wild mallard hens you see on ponds, only with a big ol' poof!

    I was gonna get a crested magpie but i don't think they had them availible when we ordered the chicks. it's ok though Junna is gorgious I hope she keeps her markings + mottling on her feet and beak

    Thanks for saying who is what. I am going to get some ducklings from the feed store and I been trying to figure out what the different breeds of ducks look like at that age.

    I guessed that Junna was an Ancona. I was close!
