    Recently got these 3 ducks from a livestock auction and have no idea what their breed is - anyone got a clue?

    Looks like either 2 boys and a girl (the girl back left) or three boys if they are all the same size.

    Thank y'all - I'm all excited to know that they're muscovy!!!!

    They're not all the same size.... You may be right about the one the back left being a female - I have a pekin (I think) and she doesn't care for the one in the back on the left - she's constantly pecking at it and running it off.

    Thank you Nuggetsowner - I love them!!! I'm new to owning ducks - saw some at a flea market back in May and had to rescue 2 of them. Sadly my bird dog got a hold of one a month back and I wanted to replace him. Got these last Tuesday.

    muscovy, i would say they were hatched early/mid may. they still have a tiny bit of fuzz on the head.

    Aww, they look like baby Milks! I have a scovy named Milk that was that color when he was younger, now he's black with a white head, pretty much. I love scovies.
