    Where did you buy them? Whoever sold them to you should be able to tell you what they are. My guess would be pekin....they look like they're larger and have larger bills than my call ducklings.

    Swapmeet. :| Mistake? ah, the man didnt tell me, he was selling ducklings and bunnies.
    Is the difference between call and pekins on the bill only?

    Pekins are much larger ducks than calls are. They also have a different body type as they grow up.

    Hmmm? I should probably read more about them. I wouldnt know if mine are larger or smaller considering I dont know the sizes of either of em /:
    but maybe they could be pekin. They seem rather large and have grown a lot in the past 3 weeks! [​IMG]

    thank you! this really helped [​IMG]

    Hmmmmm............ IMO they could possibly be the infamous Daffodil Ducks, 2nd cousin to Daffy Duck of Looney Tunes fame. [​IMG] [​IMG]
