    Hey guys,

    I got a total of 3 ducks. All of them are black / bluish. Two of them are bantam breeds. The larger one I had a pair of and the female flew the fence and ran away. I was curious if anyone could help me identify them. Also they are VERY skittish... they will not eat any treats if you are in view of them. These are my first ducks. I have had chickens for a few years now but I am new to ducks. I have a baby pool for them to get wet in and they eat what the chickens eat. The yard is full of grass so I think they will be happy. Any and all suggestions would greatly be appreciated.

    So the bigger one looks like a black or blue swedish and the smaller one maybe a black call with a white bib. Not sure how to classify its color but a call of some sort. Anyone feel free to correct me.

    After looking on meyerhatchery.com I thought maybe blue or black swedish too. Thanks for the info... here is another picture of them.

    The two call ducks, if I breed them are they worth selling?

    Looks like some sort of sweedish. And a white bibed call, and a chocholate call.

    Now that I see that pic. It looks like a chocholate bibed and a non bibed chocholate. They would be fine to sell the ducklings. And they look like reasonable quality to. Congrats!

    Quote:Cool thank you and everyone else for the info so far! They seem and look very healthy. Other than their clipped feathers I would say they were flawless.

    Thanks again for your info!

    If your not breeding for show quality then any ducklings are fine to sell. They look like they would have good ducklings anyway!
