    I got 7 babies at Tractor Supply yesterday. According to the guy 2 are khaki campbells and the other 5 are rouens.

    As nice and helpful as the employees at my local TS are, duckling identification isn't their best attribute. Case in point when we got what we were told were pekins that actuallu were runners.

    The khaki campbells do look like the images I've found. The images I have seen of rouens don't quite look like mine. Their markings don't look as defined to me. The lighter one especially throws me off.

    None of those are rouens. They look to be golden 300 hybrids, and could take another picture of the darker ones in some better light I can't tell for sure with them.

    One of the "khakis." They look black at first, but are actually more of a dark brown.

    I'm not sure those other ones look like rouens either. They could be golden 300s.

    Hmmmm. It dosen't look like you have any khakis. I'm not sure what those are. They might be golden 300s. Does anyone think there might be muscovies?

    I didn't see a noticeable hook on the end of the beak like I have with all the muscovies we have raised here, so I'm gonna say no, but there always is a possibility [​IMG][​IMG]

    Thanks everyone. Sad news we lost 3 of the rouens, possibly to a snake.
