Does this still look like a saxony duckling?

    What's the age? The coloring is right, and I can just make out the eye stripe.

    Hard to tell with all the duckling fluff what's what there.

    I'm surprised to hear of Saxonies at TSC but I guess it's possible. It's still a young duck though, so it could change. Could end up being Buff, (buff is one of the breeds saxony is derived from) but the stripes look right for saxony.

    Okay thanks! Good to know. They told me it was a khaki cambell. But i also ended up with 2 runners and a black swedish.
    Here is what she looked like the day i got her.

    Ugh tough call. Also I misspoke, I don't think Saxonies come from buffs.
