    I have six khaki Campbells and I finally know what I have!
    I have 3 drakes and 3 ducks.
    One duck for sure heads to freezer camp this weekend. He's got severe wry neck and I don't think he'll recover.
    Yay for three girls! I was worried I'd have 5 boys and a girl.

    That is great you can tell what they are. I am waiting with my 7 runners and have no clue. This is my first experience with keeping ducks. I am hoping I don't have too many drakes because I will have to find a home for some, and I'm not sure how easy that will be, especially after winter sets in. I keep listening to the quacks... but they all sound pretty similar, and then I hear one a little different and I think... that is a drake and then I think no that sounds like a quack. I tried picking them up... but they all quack when I pick them up... I guess time will tell.
