    Thank you! I will keep my eye on them for sure. Do you think I could keep a GC drake and a SA drake with only five girls for them both?

    I think that would work fine especially since they are being raised together. It really depends on your drakes, some are mild and sweet, others can be more aggressive. I would say just watch them as they grow. If the drakes are consistently fighting among themselves or bullying your ducks, you'll have to get rid of one. But like I said, raising them together will give you a better chance of it working out.

    One looked lighter in the picture to me, but if you think they both look fairly light it could definetly mean two females!

    The darker of my two GC is the same color as the lighter of Ruralpearls..does that make since ;) my light colored GC is really light.
    Plus yesterday my crew did a little swimming, my darker GC was bathing making a happy little honk sound all the while..beginnings of a quake? I'll try and get a better pic of them today.

    Boy, they sure are light. The one furthest back looks like a GC but the other almost looks like a Saxony it is so light! Cute, cute babies!!

    Also another thing to think about, female GC have a dark beak while the males have a very pale/peachy colored beak. I looked at Ruralpearls picture again, and now I'm thinking two girls :p
