    Bear with me here as I am still new to the boards and I am still working out how to post pictures, but they will be up, I swear!... have them on the computer, now I need to figure the process of getting them up here. They are rumored to be Pekins... and with two of them I can see that, but the other two I am at a total loss for... one looks like a baby Harlequin drake with the blue bill... the other one has me totally stumped. Pictures will follow within the next 10 to 15 minutes I promise.

    I am really curious about the little black one. I dunno what the heck type he is.

    Oh, and the Cayuga in the background is the juvenile hen that has become surrogate mommy. she got so exited that she shook and then darted all over doing her happy dance. She now herds them everywhere and protects them from everyone else.

    So, does anyone have any ideas about our little yellow breasted buddy? Still wondering here... been looking on line and I cant find any pics that don't have the stripe on the side of the head.

    Hmm, light coloured one on the left looks a bit Muscovy-like, but I'm sure a Muscovy owner can say whether it is or not [​IMG] The little black one could be a Black Swedish..

    Yellow chest is a black Swedish. You could have some Pekin in their too along with a Cayuga.
