I apologize if this has been addressed already.

I have 6 ducklings. Four of them are Khaki Campbells. Two of them are Blue Indian Runners.

The 2 Blue Indian Runner ducklings are yellow. Is that what they are supposed to be? I have looked online and thought I saw that ducklings are blue!? That would make sense. But mine are yellow?


And three Khaki Campbells are GREY while the other is brown. From what I can see, the Khaki's are supposed to be brown?? I'm so confused!!



Thanks for any help, links or information anyone can give me.

Were did you get them from? That does not sound right. I have Khaki Campbell and its brown, so were my to old girls who I no longer have. My blue runner was not white as a baby.

I bought them special order through our local Agway. They get their poultry from Privett Hatchery in New Mexico. Maybe I should just contact them? Perhaps THEY can tell me??

Yellow becomes white
Grey becomes a beautiful silver
Brown is brown. You have one khaki. The grey that turns to silver is amazing really. I'm sorry u didnt get what you ordered but they sound pretty.

Any idea what I DO have then? I can't seem to figure it out!?

Here's a couple of pictures showing the definite difference in the colors. Even the 2 yellow ducklings which are supposed to be Blue Indian Runners are different color from each other - one being lighter.

I think the grey are runners. Brown kc. Light colors are fawn runners. I think. I have runners. They are hilarious to watch. Outside they drop there eggs while running. The hens have a unique quack. Mine sounds just like a chain saw idleing. Hope I'm right. The bills give runners away.

I got these ducks at Orschlins. They were in a mixed straight run. Can anyone tell me what they are. And can you tell if they are mallards or rouens? Which I think they are one of those.

From these pictures it looks like you got 3 blue runners (the gray ones), 2 silver or maybe lavender runners (I don't think they are fawn or white because they'd have pink bills), and 1 khaki campbell (brown).

The lavender and silver runners grow up looking quite beautiful, so I'd be a little jealous if that's what you got


Congrats!
