    I just got 6 ducklings from TSC. I bought 2 thinking they would be Cauyga's but now I think they might be black swedes. Is there anyway to tell the difference between the two? Here are some Pics.

    Black #2 (note he has NO yellow spots on his back!)

    Also I got one that looks kinda swedish but it has kinda silver/buff markings with pink feet and a light blue/pink bill. I'll try and upload pics from my Phone. Can anyone tell me what the mystery duckling might be?

    I think #1 is Cayuga. #2 is Black Swedish, #3 is Blue Swedish, dark silver (if a 4th chick) is still a Blue Swedish, and mystery chick -not sure. If a Swedish, maybe a very light now or a different breed altogether.
    Adorable ducklings!
    Have fun! They grow so fast!

    Yay! I have at least 1 Cayuga! Do you think Mystery might be runner? The light stripes under the eyes and the color change is really confusing me.

    The mystery duck acutaly looks like our silver cayuga duckling have looked before, though I seriously doubt a hatchery supplied some of them? But do look exactly like them
