    [​IMG]. I can't figure out if my duck is a buff or saxony, the white stripe on her eye and collar is throwing me off. Can anyone help me? Thanks

    Thanks Ducks4us I don't think she looks like a saxony either, but I have never seen a Buff with a white eye stripe wondering if she might be a mix.

    My buff actually had am eye stripe as well at first. When a baby i wondered if it was a saxony too. But at that age its obvious.
    Saxony have way more of a stripe.

    Thank you, I have 6 ducks I have no idea what they are except for her, I will have to separate males from females though were only allowed to own 7 where I live ;( I heard the males tend to be better looking than females.
