    I recently got a yellow duckling about a week old and it's bill and feet are a light yellowish to orange. It's now growing tan feathers all on its chest and wings. I thought it was a Peking but now I doubt it. Can anyone help me find out what it yet is?

    Possibly a Buff. Could you post a picture?

    Sorry not the best picture and this is a few days old so the tan feathers aren't really visable . It started on his chest and now his wings. It's a caramel color and coming in fast.

    Looks like a Saxony to me.

    Also I have what I think is a Cayuga but now he's getting white speckles on his chest. Totally black, feet and bill are black with green throughout his body till his chest started getting white spots. Super cute still.

    Not a Cayuga. That duckling is dark brown, not black. Might be a Campbell.

    I would say either a Saxony or a Buff. Is this a new or old picture? Could you try getting one of the yellow duckling tomorrow?
