    They look like Mallards and Pekins to me.

    Rouens resemble mallards, but the eye stripes are a little different in rouens.

    I had pekin ducks as a kid. They lived forever! I hope we have as much luck with these. Do I have to worry about the mallards flying away? I've never had those. They were just so cute had to get them. [​IMG] for geese!!

    You probably won't know the sex until their quacks start sounding different, or the males get their little curly drake feathers on their tails. [​IMG] Cuties... [​IMG]

    They do look like pekings and mallards, but how much brown is there on the yellow ones? If there is a lot of smudge, they COULD be buffs??

    Rouens resemble mallards, but the eye stripes are a little different in rouens.

    Really? Can you tell what Bungie is? Mallard or Rouen?

    Rouen [​IMG] they get a big bigger than Mallards, I believe.


    rouens have two eye stripes, mallards have one eye stripe and a dot underneath it.
