    I have two ducklings, one is a pekin and the other is a Rouen. We purchased them on march 18th and was just wondering about how old they are? They seem to be getting new feathers and out grew out boorder box we had for them. We have moved them into a coop outside, with limited access to the outdoors. We have a heat lamp in their sleeping area and keep the door closed and only let them roam on really nice days. This picture was taken on Monday.

    congrats on the new ducklings... they are cute... and look to be about 2 weeks old. From the picture you posted I don't see a Rouen duckling though... Rouen ducklings look like mallard ducklings being black and yellow... the one in the water appears to be either pekin or a runner I would have to see it standing up the one standing I'm not sure about

    Thanks hillaire! I just went and took this picture. Maybe this will be able to help. We bought them from tractor supply and that's what we told for breed but not 100% sure. [​IMG]

    Cute ducklings! Have you tried asking on the Duck forum? They're a helpful, knowledgeable bunch.
