This is my first time raising ducks (I’ve had chickens for past 2 years) and I bought them at TSC when they were 4 days old. One I know is a pekin, but the other two I’m not sure. The pics are when I brought them home, then a little older and now at 7 weeks. One of them was all brown with no lines around the eyes and the other has one line which has completely disappeared. Any thoughts on breed?

If I'm not mistaken I thought rouens have one line around there eye and mallards have too. Were are you located? I know in Florida hatcheries wont sell you mallards. Im guessing a roen but I'm no expert by any means I only have pekins

I think the darker one looks like a Khaki Campbell, and the lighter one looks like a Golden 300 Layer. They don't look Rouen or Mallard to me.

You know... my mind wandered and thought golden 300 for a moment too, I just don't know! :confused: I have never had a golden 300 or mallard or rouen and in my brain the ducklings are all the same! haha.

Thanks everyone. I definitely think the dark one is a Khaki Campbell now, still not sure of the lighter one. I’ll try and get better pictures this weekend. We are still in the process of building their pen with pool.

Here's my Golden 300 Layer. They do have some similarities to a Rouen or Mallard, but I believe that the bar on their wings is usually black instead of blue.

Also, Rouens and Mallards look like this as ducklings:

And this is a Golden 300 Layer duckling:
