    Hey guys. Just got these babies a little more than a week ago. Any idea on what they could be. The guy at the feed store guessed Cayuga for the yellow bellied and wasn't sure on the little black one. They are the same age![​IMG]

    The chocolate on the right looks khaki campbell . The other one looks brown too in my photo but if its black i would say cayuga.
    They are sure cute! I have 3 khaki campbells and they ate so sweet! I love them.

    Thank you! They little is all black for sure. Maybe a tad lighter in the chest. And I'm really hoping the bigger is Cayuga! It's black also with a yellow belly.[​IMG]

    I would have guessed Khaki Campbell at first too, but if their bills and feet are black they are probably blue Cayugas!

    Can I get a guess on the duckling breed? It's the lighter one.. Not the Pekin. It's much lighter than khakis I've had. New feathers coming in almost look a greyish maybe blue or lavender in color...Puzzled. Head is a bit darker than rest of body and feet are tannish color,very light [​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Thanx...That's what I'm thinking cuz she/he is very light...Almost grey or lavenderish. Especially the new feathers coming in. Was only one in a batch of ducklings that came in right as I got there
