    Hi there, I purchased a few ducks at Tractor Supply this spring and am now in the process of trying to figure out what kind of breeds I ended picking out. I have seven total, I'll post pictures. My guess is that I have 2-3 Khakis, 2 Rouens(I think), 1 Pekin, and one mystery duck. I say 'mystery' because he has a pencil pattern orange feet, and a light colored bill (it was more on the pink side when he was younger but it's light orange/yellow now.) Could anyone confirm what breeds I have and help my solve my mystery duck?

    Also, do you think the darker brown duck with the crest on her neck is a Khaki too? She's very similar to the other two Khakis but a shade darker brown with that white spot and a bill that's more of a grey tone. 20190622_200446.jpg

    She could be a mix, because I can see a really faint facial stripe I think? I am sure others who know more will chime in soon! I love Patch, he is so cute!

    I think both the ducks with white in them are mixes, call the tsc that they came from and ask them where they get their ducks, most tsc’s get their ducks from Hoover’s, which means the ducks would not be mixed, but if they were from a small town hatchery that has 1 large flock of ducks and not separate breeding pens they are mixed.

    I see faint eye stripes on the lighter “Khaki” as well so it isn’t a pure Khaki. Golden 300 hybrids maybe??

    I've never heard of this breed. You're right im pretty sure the white crested one is a Male so that's a possibility. I did contact tractor supply for more information as was suggested. Im looking forward to the answer.

    Well i heard back from tractor supply, turns out the ducks should all be purebreds. The search continues. I'll keep posting the findings

    Okay! We have a final answer from Tractor Supply and you guys were pretty much spot on with their findings. They also believe the white crested duck is a Golden 300 and the two toned duck they think is a Pekin/Mallard mix. Guess I got an odd luck of the draw, not that I'm mad though. They all have great personalities and are healthy, that's all I care about. Thanks for the help everyone!
