    Hi there. I just picked up for ducklings at tractor supply. I assumed the yellow were pekin, but one has a Mohawk.
    Any ideas on breeds?
    Thanks

    The tuft could mean male. But not sure.

    The ones with stripes are rouens... and the white are pekin. One is a crested.
    Crested has nothing to do with the gender fyi [​IMG][​IMG]

    Mallards have one stripe and another small short line under the first stripe.
    Rouens have two full stripes
