    Just picked these ducklings up at the local feed store and have no idea what they are. Any ideas?

    one on the right is probably a pekin. the one on the left, i'm not sure but i had some buff ducklings that looked like that. but if they came from ideal its possible they might be snowy mallards. (where the feed store probably got them from)

    Hi, I would guess Peking. Yellow birds grow up to be white. so that should help narrow it down for you. Enjoy your babies.

    Oh god they're cute.....must....try...to....ID....[​IMG] the cuteness of those fluffy little wings is distracting.

    The one on the right is a Pekin.

    The other one definetly has an eyestripe, albeit very faint. I would say either a poor quality Welsh Harlequin or just a mutt

    Good Luck...they make one heck of a mess [​IMG]

    My guess would be 1 pekin and 1 Runner- as for colour- it looks to have very light markings that include eye stripes - almost looks like a saxony duckling at this age- but unlikely to be any of them at a feed store.
