    These guys are just a few days old. Most of them I believe are from my rouen duck and male, but you can't miss my little cross (in the middle with the pink bill) [​IMG] He or she is adorable and I can't wait to see what it looks like once it feathers out! Momma duck has been out with them and they are busy, busy, busy. They all have black feet except for "Spot" who's feet are just like the rest of him - half black and half white - it's so cute [​IMG]

    Can you post a pic of the one in the middle? I have one that hatched out that looks almost identical from the one in pictures except his feet are black with yellow spots.
    Maybe that is what he is crossed with???

    boykin2010 will do my best to get you a "close-up". Momma rouen is very protective, my daughter picked one of them up this morning while they scooted through their fence and whoohoo there were some shrieks going on. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    HUH! I have been trying so hard to find out what Cupcake was! Looks like she (he?) is a mixed breed (I was suspecting). Here are pics. Cupcake is a little over 2 weeks old in these photos.
