    Hello, would someone be able to help identify these ducks? They were found in Poland. Thanks.

    POLSKIE KACZKI. Just kidding. It translates to polish ducks. Well I cant but I'm sure some one has such.

    They look to me like Muscovy crosses. Beautiful

    I would have never guessed that, but since all of you agree there must be something to it. Thank you all.
    Oh and funny thing, these are two different ducks that appear to be the exact same cross, but they have been found separately at different locations.

    Interesting for sure, With the way Muscovy's fly though it doesn't surprise me that they would have off spring scattered around from mating with other domestic ducks. Looks like the second on might be a female from looking at her face, not sure on the first one but they are beautiful ducks, will you be keeping them? Looking again I think the top pic beautiful chocolate brown one might be a drake. A pair!

    yeah mule ducks are some of the most dumped ducks, but also some of the most common ducks too. :)

    Actually it's not me who has them, but a friend of mine who works at an animal shelter that asked for help. And I don't think she'll be keeping them, most likely they will be set free once they're strong enough.
