    I got six ducks today!
    Two are too young to sex or tell what the adult color will be.

    Then we have...
    Mama Duck -who is obviously a female but I don't know what her color would be called.

    Cocoa -My favorite of the three eight week old babies.

    Brown Baby One -Who is darker then Brown Baby Two.

    [​IMG]

    Brown Baby Two -has a lot more light brown markings growing in then Brown Baby One does.

    Picture 2 -Mommy Duck is the mom of the bottom 3 babies. And the dad with her looked like her but much bigger. The mom of the two babies in the first picture could have been the identical twin of Mamma Duck and the dad was similar too so I don't know if maybe there was another breed of duck back in the grandparents that is showing up now in their grandducklings
