    We're pretty new at raising ducks. We currently have 27 (mostly runners, 1 Pekin, and 2 Rouens). We got our 2 Rouens and Pekin from Rural King on a whim.

    When we got Pickles, she was in a big container with Rouens, but she was the only all black duckling. We had no idea if she was for-sure Rouen, or if she got mixed in by accident.

    When she grew up, she ended up looking like a very dark Rouen, but we've never been able to find a picture of a duck that looks just like her!

    The duck in the back of the first picture is the one that we got at the same time and is obviously a male Rouen. The second picture is the trio fully matured. Does anyone else have a duck that looks like this? Any information would be great!

    Thank you so much (for the compliment and the link)! We actually named her Pickles because we thought she was going to be a Cayuga :/
