    Welcome to Backyard chickens. The only duck breed I am vaguely familiar with is the Mallard, so my wild guess would be it is one. For people who really know ducks - head to the "Other Backyard Poultry," forum to check out the duck threads . Good luck. It is a darling little duckling.

    Welcome to BYC![​IMG] I'm glad you joined us.

    I don't have much experience with ducks, but it looks like possibly a Mallard or a Rouen. I would definitely post in the Ducks section that MyMillieFleur linked to for some more answers.

    Good luck with your duckling!

    I hope you'll consider getting another duckling to go with this lil one they do so much better if they have a buddy. did you find this little one or buy? looks like a Mallard duckling to me. At the age your baby is it would be hard for any of us to tell gender yet.It sure is a cutie though.

    Welcome to BYC
