    Okay so Im not an expert on ducks but I love playing this game. Lol! So im going to take a wild guess. The first picture from left to right, maybe a khaki campbell (cant see it very well), the middle I am not sure at all so not even going to guess lol, the one in the back might be a khaki campbell drake, the last one a magpie, ancona, or blue swede, leaning towards one of the first to cause I dont think swedes are suppose to have so much white. Lol! The next pic saxony? Maybe? Then from back to front saxony? and cayuga. Next, Khaki campbell hen in the background and maybe saxony in front. Im not familiar with saxony but I have seen pics and they look like yours. Next pic Blue swedish. And again I have no idea on the last one. At first I thought maybe a silver appleyard but I have only seen lighter ones, though I guess it could be a dark one. If you know what they are please please tell me if I am right on any of them. I am trying to get better at knowing most of the duck breeds. BEAUTIFUL ducks by the way! [​IMG]

    I changed my mind on the last pic. i am now thinking that it is trout runner. Lol! [​IMG]

    Ooh, pretty ducks! [​IMG]
    I have the same drake as the one with the black head and brown body. Is that a Cinnamon?
    Got mine from Holderreads in April as Cinnamons.
    The one next to him looks like a Gray Runner female?
    The ones on the bottom, if they are runners look like a pied lavender and pied cinnamon?
    Pray tell. Some of them don't look runner judging from the curve int he bills. Dunno. [​IMG]
    I'm still guessing the colors in my gang. They are all different, although I bought Silvers and Cinnamons. I think I might even have a trout or something. LOL. [​IMG]

    Haha, all the grey and white ones, and the reddish ones are blasck swedish and buff duck mixed. and the two runner looking ducks are indian trout runners [​IMG] I think the red ones look like saxonies too, and the black one is a cayuga. [​IMG]

    and yes the brown ones are khaki campbells.

    I have no idea when looking at ducks what they are unless they are a whistling duck, a mallard, or a teal. I know these only because mallards live across the street from me, teals at a pond behind me, and whistling ones commute between the two places.

    That second picture that shows one duck then the tail of another in the lower right... the one duck there looks like it's the same color as my Buff Orpingtons. In the top photo, the third from the left with his head cut off by the top of the pic has the same color body but a black looking neck. I'm not sure if it is a trick of the colors but that speckled one in the top and bottom pic looks like he has a skinny head. That might help figure out what he is. It doesn't look near as blocky or wide as the mallards or the whistling ducks around here.

    Is it a trout runner due to the color or because it eats trout? I'm not trying to make a joke here (yeah, I know, it certainly sounds like it). The fact is I can see that narrow head being really handy when swimming along at high speeds to catch small trout fry.
