    My kids talked me into ducklings today...they are sharing a brooder with some baby chicks that are the same age.

    I'm guessing they are some sort of 'average every day farm bird' (nothing 'special') because I got them at the local pet shop. When I asked them what breed they were, they just said oh we don't know if they are females or males, we just ordered a straight run...and I again asked my question, what BREED, not gender are they...and they said oh they are your average duck breed...so clearly they had no idea what they ordered.

    If you have a guess on breed and or gender, I'd love to hear it. [​IMG] Thanks

    I would say that both are crested Swedish, but one has only a little crest.

    they both have the puff of a crest on their heads, just one is very small. Very sweet and MELLOW birds...they just sit on my kid's laps and hang out...
