    those are just adorable little duckies!! [​IMG] I have 3 ducks myself, and just love 'em. I don't know what breed yours are though? [​IMG] I'm surprised that the feed store didn't tell you? Perhaps they weren't certain either. Good luck with those sweeties, you're lucky! [​IMG]

    Looks like they might be Indian Runner Ducks. In an event, give they a lot of water to drink, but none to swim in until they get a little older.

    Picture's not showing the color well. They're black with yellow chests. The one looks like it has eye make up. The other's head is solid black. Black beaks, feet, legs.

    Very noisy, very busy.

    And BIG. So sweet.

    I missed chick days last year. So I had to get some.

    I've seen a lot of ducklings in my time... Best bet, is either darker colored swedish ducklings or cayugas. If the yellow on the chest is not very prominent, it's most likely cayuga.

    I would not guess runner, since even all black runners don't have yellow chests (i had one once). And khaki campbells are usually a bit browner and more even colored.
