    Ended up with a free mystery duckling yesterday. Still has egg tooth. Also some kind of white fluffy down at the sides of his mouth? Apologies for the blurry pics but he just would not sit still.

    Anyone good with ducklings out there want to hazard a guess at what breed?

    Sorry, I was in a rush and I transferred and uploaded photos of one of my Toulouse goslings instead of the duckling. My bad. [​IMG]

    Definitely a gosling. Duckling's bills would be rounded, not pointy.

    Hmm I havent seen anything like it...probably a cross-breed. Maybe a rouen or mallard mix because of the eye stripes.

    Khaki campbells are all tan/brown and don't have eye stripes.

    Most likely a crossbreed but a very pretty one!!
