    Any pics of them dry?
    Looks like you may have a khaki and an ancona. Can't tell gender at this age by looking at them but in another couple of weeks you should be able to sex them by voice

    I agree with the others.
    Do they quack? If they do, they're girls. I they make raspy noises, they're boys. If they're too young to make those sounds, then I'm not sure what they are :)

    Thanks , yes they quack - I was sold them as campbell ducks (they where in a box at our local horse market) I bought them out of Pitty as they where covered in their own poo and in a filthy box. With one being a different colour I just wasn't sure it was they same breed and defo not sure on their sex lol which doesn't really matter to me lol

    First day we got them they where so scared. But they have settled really well now and getting braver by the day bless them. They live with my chickens in a 2 story chicken shed and have claimed the bottom floor haha

    That's good. Ducks are a little skittish, I agree, maybe even more than chickens lol.
