    Age? Probably about 3 weeks. Can you post more pictures? Make sure you are feeding them a good feed with adequate Niacin. I prefer Purina Flockraiser.

    I have started niacin and since we don't get a good feed nearby I make my own. [​IMG]

    Likely cross breeds. As for age, they look to be in the 3-4 week range

    I will toss out my guess......I think you have a Magpie and a Pekin Duckling and they are roughly just over two weeks? Possibly 3 weeks?........

    So CUTE!!......


    Cheers!

    Did you get them at a feed store? If yes, they probably aren't mixes.

    I agree the yellow is likely a Pekin as those are the most common white ducks. I think the other is an Ancona.
