    Hi all! Thank you for taking the time to read this post!
    I could really use some help identifying the sex/breed of this ducking.
    When "she" was a little duckling, I thought "she" was a Buff Orpington. As "she" started to Molt and grown, I'm starting to wonder Indian Runner?
    I can post better pictures, if needed [​IMG]

    :frow Hi, and :welcome

    Awww what a cutie! It looks like it could be a crested fawn duckling. Does it have a crest or is that just the angle?

    I'm sorry, I miss understood what "crested" means in ducks [​IMG] I didn't realise that means they have a puff on the head of the duck ( if I understand right ). Maybe duck doesn't have a puffy head of feathers. She does have brown and yellow father's coming in. Also she stands up straight. I keep calling "Buffy" a she, but I honestly don't know the sex [​IMG] Buffy is very sweet and wants to cuddle constantly!
    Thank you so much for welcoming me!
