    170D48BF-BE1F-4987-ADD8-A25516A7B2EF.jpeg Hello all!
    We got 2 baby ducks 3 months ago and we were told by the farm that they were both female khaki Campbell’s. This is our first time raising ducks and someone had recently pointed out to us that our darker duck looks like a male. Can anyone help us out a little more and tell us what you think?
    Thank you!

    On my limited duck experience, I don’t think either of those are khaki Campbells. We had some last year and they were a more smooth brown all the way through, although I do think the one in the back is a male.

    One in the background is a drake, in the foreground is a duck. Non of them are khaki Campbells. Khaki Campbells are smooth brown and skittish.

    Like previously stated, I think you have a drake in the back and hen up front. Also, they are so gorgeous!
