    I bought the small ducklings in these pictures at an auction, I don't know what they are. One is solid black like the cayugas I got at the feed mill, the others have yellow on their breast and at their eyes. I assume they could be a mix, they were only .55 cents a peice so I couldn't say no![​IMG]

    The Yellow chested ones could be Black Swedish.

    Hmmmm, I think they look JUST LIKE the little Muscovy ducks I had. Whatever they are, they sure are cuties!

    They look just like my Blue Swedish ducklings that I got-and the Cayuga looks like mine too. And what a great buy! Mine were about $4 each! Have fun! I love mine-they are so funny!

    This is why my DH won't let me go to the local small animal auction. He knows I would come home with something.
