    We rescued this duckling after he was dropped off at a park nearby. We have raised khaki Campbells before and pekins... He doesn't look like any we've raised... do you think he is an ancona?[​IMG]

    I'm not an expert by any means, I'm just a first time duck owner... But he sure looks like my B&W Anconasv when they were younger.

    I would say yes. Generally mixes have more color and markings. So chances are high that's an ancona :)
    Do the feet and bill have spots?

    Yes he has some black spots on one foot! And small black speckles on his bill... He is such a gem, loves people:)

    These are some of the ones I hatched this year. They are a fun breed as they all look so different
