    A nice lady rescued these ducks from certain harm in her neighborhood. She had continuously returned these ducks to their owner, he continued to let them run around the neighborhood, on a very busy street and they were being chased by neighborhood dogs. He even asked her if she wanted them. She is not set up for ducks so she called me. I was going to take them to the Carolina Waterfowl Rescue but Jennifer just took in a horrific hoarding case that consisted of 250 very needy ducks, geese, etc. I just can't see these going to her when she is so loaded right now. So........*sigh

    What have I got? Rt to left: 1. I'm not sure (mallard?) but male 2. Pekin? and female 3. Male Swedish? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    From left to left it looks like a male either mallard or Rouen, then definitely a Pekin but unsure of the gender, Then that looks like a crested Rouen maybe mixed with swedish?
    I'm no expert so don't swear by my guesses. lol

    Other than the Pekin, not sure of breeds. I just wanted to say thank you for taking them. They are lucky to have ended up with you!
