    Hello! I bought 6 baby ducks from Tractor Supply this year. They are about 1.5 Months old. I figured out that I have 2 Pekin (have 3 adult ones already), 2 Mallard Hens and 2 I can't figure out what they are. We call them Stix and Rutter (hubby is into airplanes)

    Stix has the markings of a Mallard but the beak and feet are not black like my two Mallard hens. Rutter is cream all over with brown tips on the wings and is starting to get a brown type Helmet on his head and upper neck. Pictures are below.

    [​IMG] These two photo's are of Rutter

    Does anyone know what breed these two ducks are?

    Stix Does not look like my khakis .
    Maybe a Rouen since you say she has colors of a mallard ? Or golden 300? Maybe Just guesses, hard to to tell . Maybe some clearer photos of stix

    Thank you! I had a feeling that one was a Khaki Campbell. But the Silver Appleyard I did not have a clue, but now that I have looked up the pictures I can see the markings do resemble. I appreciate the quick response.

    I kind of ruled out a Rouen because Stix did not have the double lines running across the eyes as a small chick. Guess I will have to wait a few more months and see what Stix looks like full grown.

    Okay looking through the duck breeds here on Backyardchickens I think Stix is a Dark Campbell. Stix has all the same markings.
