    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!
