    Hello!! I'm a first time duck owner - worked with them in the past but never had my own. I was wondering if anyone could identify the species yet? And also, any name suggestions would be much appreciated as we are stuck! The brown one is quite small and quiet whereas the yellow one is very noisy and cheeky!

    The yellow one is a Pekin, it will grow fast and be 8-12 pounds when fully grown.
    Do you have a better pic of the brown? It looks like a Rouen. But it also may be a Mallard, it just looks like it has two eye stripes. I love my Rouens!

    I have six, well now five ducks. (We had to get rid of a feather plucker).

    That was Silver. He is my favorite drake. I have two ducks of this color.
    I also have one named Sky, since she had a blue leg band on as a duckling, one named Red, for the red leg band (not very original, I know!), Storm for the color of rain clouds, and Silver.
    Not the most original but hey, it works!

    You're very welcome! :)
    You got a Rouen. It should be 7-9 pounds when fully grown. They lay 90-180 eggs per year.
