    My sister-in-law works for a vet and the other day a woman came in with a little duck? goose? that she found wandering alone down the 4 lane. So because I have ducklings already she brougt it to me. She is so cute...solid yellow with orange beak and legs, dark eyes. Any ideas what breed. I will try to post pic later.

    No, but if it's solid yellow, it will probably be white when mature. So, if a duck, probably a Pekin.

    I don't know enough about goose breeds to begin to speculate. My goose knowledge is still rudimentary.

    Post a pic please [​IMG] ....

    If its a duck it will probably be a pekin like Denninmi said....

    If a goose it could possibly be a white chinese or something around that....not really sure though [​IMG]

    is it similar to this?

    Big indicator is check the beak. Are the nose holes on the top of the beak or the bottom? If they are closer to the top its probably a duck. closer to the bottom probably a goose

    It looks like it could be an Embden goose, but perhaps others with more experience will add their input.

    It certainly looks like my Embdens and a gander as well. Don't hold me to that but the neck looks thick just as it does on my ganders.
