    Did you ever find out the answer? I am wondering the answer to that myself. I just bought a couple ducklings from an assortment they got, no one knew what was what, so I was hoping to find out online where they came from so I can get an answer if they are chocolate runners or khaki campbells. Also, they are not sexed and I'm not expert enough for venting so was thinking of getting a couple more to increase the odds I would have at least one female.[​IMG]

    To Bettythegreat: Did you CALL Wilco and ask them where the ducks came from? Sorry, but i don't know anything about ducks other than that they like water. Good luck and best wishes.

    I only asked when I was there, and the 'experts' said they didn't know. But when I went back today to look at their new shipment they had another assorted batch, and a batch of what they were calling golden 300s which I got one of, they were all yellow which didn't sound right to me as online that breed is tan or black so maybe he/she is a white layer or pekin. I got two others, which I believe are a blue swedish and a black swedish.
