    I believe the dark is a rouen and the yellow is a mystery chick possibly pekin but for some reason I am thing not. I bought at auction and mystery chick had been bought on EBAY supposed to be a turkey OKcarla got a surprise duck which I purchased any guesses? Yellow chick seems bluer than it is I accidentally had nightshot on.

    Second is a rouen.

    The first looks like a pekin at first glance, but looks like slightly darker markings around the eues. Could be a runner or buff or a pekin. Or something else.

    I don't think it is a blue swede.
    This is Lips and her buddy Cotton Butt the Pekin

    Lips always had this coloring, even as a duckling

    I vote buff or it could be a mutt. Buffs sometimes look gray for a while. The color fixes itself later.

    It looks like it has a lot of blue in it though.

    The blue is from the nightshot on my camera. At what age can you tell from the stance if it is a runner?
