    I'm not sure which mine are. Some have said they may be mallards but I thought they were Rouens.

    Just for maybe size comparison the Peking is a year old

    It really doesn't matter, but mallards fly right? I guess it would help, in the pic they are six weeks old.

    I finally got to talk to the manager at TSC and they only sold mallards and Pekins this year. So I guess they will be able to fly then. I do free range so I guess if they like us they will stay around.

    They're mallards. I'm betting that if you keep feeding them food that they like, they will stick around.
