    Hello everyone, I bought some ducklings a few weeks ago from a farm supply store. The only thing they could tell me is that they were hatchery choice. So what do you all think, are they cayugas or am I mistaken?

    I was wondering about runners too, a couple of them stand up pretty tall. Your babies do look very similar. What color are your runners when they grow up?

    Black or brown. Then they start getting snow feathers and are speckled with white.
     
  5. They DEFINITELY stand like runners.

    They look like Cayugas to me. Exactly like my Pepper:

    I'm a bit late, but they look like Cayugas. This thread is from a couple months ago, so I'm sure they are feathered out by now. If their feathers have an iridescent green sheen to them, they are definitely Cayugas.
