    Got three little cuties that I have no idea what they are, anyone know duck species? Here's 4 pics, The big grey one is a few weeks older than the other 2, thats why its so much bigger. One is a chocolate color and the other one is yellow with like a grey saddle and it also has a puff on top if its' head, think that's called a crest. Thanks guys! And yes, you can see my two little chicks in the background also, they are supposedly easter eggers.

    The brown one looks like a possible chocolate runner. I can't tell for sure unless I saw him stand up (second pic makes me think runner). If he stands upright and looks like a bowling pin when he walks then runner. Otherwise it's a possible Khaki Campbell.

    I'm not sure on the yellow, possibly a crested call duck?

    The big duck I can't really tell because he is restricted in the pics, laying down and not standing up straight in the water pic. I'm going to say most likely is a Khaki Campbell. The problem telling the difference between the Khaki's and the Runners is that the Khaki's were derived from the runners and can sometimes seem to walk a bit tall like them for a few steps.

    You'll know if you have a runner though. They walk very tall, seem to have no breast they walk so tall and really do look like a "duck pin" bowling pin.

    I am going to say a chocolate runner or a khaki campbell, a blue runner, and a crested blue ancona.
