    Hey guys I had adopted two baby ducklings from a local tractor store about four months ago. When i got them one was about three and a half days old and the other one was a week and a half old. Usually i'd pick two from the same family but i absolutely fell in love with one little black duck with a black beak and black legs and feet. Meanwhile my boyfriend picked the older bright yellow duckling with bright pink feet and beak. Once we saw how well they interacted the was no way they weren't coming home with them. Once they matured the black duck developed orange feet and a blue tinted beak with black and brown feathers with a couple very minuscule purple and green tinted lines going horizontal across his wings when closed He's a boy and quite an onnery one. The yellow duck turned all white in just a couple months and then developed black feathers in an oval right on top of her head, but not covering her eyes, and leaving a streak of white between her newly developed (what i like to call her) GOOSE BUMP on the very top of her beak nearest to her head, but it's very small and is colored a little darker pink/orange red-ish color. She has yellow feet now too. As her tail feathers grew in we found out she was a girl. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME FIGURE OUT WHAT BREED OF FEATHERED FRIENDS I HAVE!! We keep searching the internet for answers and we can't find any for the older duck expecially. :/

    Great pics and welcome aboard! I'm not familiar with duck or goose breeds but someone who does will pop in.
    They sure are a pretty pair. :)
