    Well, now my babes are grown up. My daughter is all set to enter them in the local county fair. Very low key, casual show. She doesn't even care to win any awards but wants to share our beauties with everyone as they usually only have pekin and sometimes runners at the show. I don't know with certainty what my ducks are though!
    My drake doesn't look like these other pics I've seen of KC drakes..

    This is my Poseidon. Not sure which color is prefered for shows, but I think I prefer HIS coloring. [​IMG]
    I've looked online (Ashton Waterfowl) and saw that this coloring is called "Blue Campbell." Is this true?

    And my girl...well, she's a beauty also but she doesn't look the least bit khaki to me. She looks more chocolatey. I might swear she was a runner when she, well, runs...but then I see runners and she doesn't stand quite that tall. Also, I was told that KC girls don't have black feet, they have orange feet.

    Any help in properly labeling my ducky loves would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Wow... it looks like you do have a blue Campbell! Where in the world did you get one? I've never seen anyone selling them in the U.S. and I'd love to get a few.

    Now, your tall girl looks like a runner mix... maybe runner x campbell. She has a very sweet face [​IMG]

    Farmr Girl, you are after my heart saying things like that! I do hope it's true!...then again, I would just be happy to know what he is because he is a lovey of a drake anyway.

    Animalpro, that has crossed my mind when looking to ID him but he looked just like a KC as a duckling. Not at all like a buff.
