    [​IMG]I need help! I rescued these ducks yesterday, and have researched throughly on how to raise ducks. Thier mom was hit by a car as well as thier other 2 siblings. I went out and got everything that goes along with raising ducks. We have acreage with a pond. Anyway. I was wondering if you. Can ID the type of ducks they are. I didn't see the mom because the man that hit her brought them to me. [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    They look like welsh harlequins but not totally. I think you will have to wait these guys out.

    They look like Welsh Harlequin to me, too. But not quite, with that stripe on the head.

    2 of them look almost absolutely like Silver Appleyard ducklings. (the ones with stripes) pretty much 90% sure on that. The third one does kind of look like a welsh Harlequin.. but not really. I raise Welsh's... so I think i'ts just an S. Appleyard without the proper markings... that's my 2 cents. :)

    THAT'S the one I was trying to think of. Yes, they do look like Silver Appleyard.

    I'm still sticking to my Silver Appleyard guess. That's the closest thing they look like. Otherwise they're muts. :) But really really cute muts!!!
