    Hey, haven't been here for awhile, life got really hectic, but I'm back

    So, I recently got a duckling (I say *a* duckling because my older sister owns the other duckling), and I have no idea the breeds, I was hoping someone with experience might be able to identify them. :)

    Please ignore my hair and the fact that they're not in their enclosure.
    They weren't there for very long and they actually enjoyed it.

    Thanks for any/all help!

    I could be wrong but one looks like a pekin maybe and the other looks like a khaki campbell. Where did you get them from?

    We got them from Tractor Supply Co.
    They had all ducklings in one spot, their "sign" said "Ducks: Mixed sexes and breeds"

    The yellow is a Pekin the other maybe a khaki I bought some assorted ducklings and got one that looks just like the darker one I think most likely khaki campbell

    Agree with the Pekin, but I think that duckling has a white/yellow chest. Khakis are solid, with maybe some slightly paler fluff in front. I think Blue Swedish.

    EDT: And what sort of grinch would care that they're not in their enclosure?

    If it helps, s/he has a couple black/really dark brown spots on his/her (not sexed yet) head, and an oval spot on his/her back, and the tip of his/her beak is pink-ish.

    I can't even stand how cute ducklings are... Love that they are sleeping on your shoulder :) I have nothing useful to add - just that they are adorable :love

    Here's another picture if it helps (please excuse the wet chest, s/he accidentally got his/her chest in the water a bit).

    If you look on their website it will tell you the hatchery they get them from and the breeds they get.
