    Can anybody tell me what breed these 2 drakes look like? I'm thinking Swedish black but not sure. I have a female Cayuga and a female Saxony. 2 weeks ago we hatched 3 ducklings. I will put their picture in this post. I have looked at a million pictures and I cannot figure out what breed of drakes I have lol. Thanks for the help!

    So then the ducklings would be either

    Magpie x Saxony
    or
    Magpie x Cayuga

    I'm thinking the first one, but I my be wrong

    The 2 black ducklings are from my Cayuga female and the lighter colored one is from my Saxony female.

    Oh okay. What other breed do you think your drakes could be? Black Swedish are mostly black, with a white 'bib,' or patch, on their front. Anconas are black and white too, but they are more spotted. They could be a mix of different breeds, but I do think they are Magpies.
    P.S. I think that the drakes and your ducklings are really cute [​IMG]

    I also think they are magpies. Thank you! I'm about to start looking for Cayuga and saxony drakes to get pure breeds instead of mutts lol but they are all cute no matter what! [​IMG]
