    Just adopted these today! Duck math hit and I just doubled my flock! The eggs were bought off eBay so breeds are unknown.

    This one is easy. Meet Luna the Pekin!

    Meet Raven. She is black with a greenish shimmer to her head. She has some white on her chest.

    Meet Abigail! Named after a great horse I used to ride. She taught handicapped kids to ride and this little duck had some issues during hatching. So the name seemed to fit

    Meet Crystal. Named after the sweet woman who gave them to us.

    Hiding shyly in the back ground with the white collar is Bob.

    Here they all are. Whatever they are we already love them.

    Yes female cayugas Usually get more white on therechests as they age, while boys will usually stay all black.
