    I've looked all over the place to try to find what breed these are. I got them at our local feed store and they said they were just hatchery choice. Can anyone help? 20180405_095326.jpg 20180405_095036.jpg

    Hi Hannah
    My guess would be Rouen, Rouen, Pekin, and maybe a Blue Swedish, those two could be mallards though, I am not sure what the difference is between the 2 but I think it has something to do with their faces :idunno

    The yellow one looks like a pekin, The one with the puff looks like a crested mallard, the other black and yellow one looks like a regular mallard, the last one not sure maybe a Khaki Campbell.

    I have heard that the Rouen has two stripes by their eyes and mallards have one as ducklings. as grown ducks it is their size. Rouens are larger but colored the same.

    Yea that is what I heard too, I just did not remember which had two stripes, the mallard or the rouen, I can tell the difference between the adult birds though.
