    I was told I was getting pure Pekins. Then hatch time came and there were 2 dark ones! Then after drying off I realized one of the Pekins (now I hope Pekin) is crested which I was really happy about. I didnt mind a few mixed out of 8, but after emailing the breeder he notified me he shipped whatever eggs he had gathered. He has no clue what is what, or how many mixed I may have. All he said is that they would be a Fawn & White Runner mix, and asked how many sit upright. I asked him about the crested duckling two days ago but he has not responded since. Can you help me identify these? I know its early but I know there are plenty experts out there.

    First obvious mix:

    Crested Pekin?

    This one is almost white compared to the yellow ducklings. It has a brownish tint to its head:

    How adorable. The one is a fawn and white runner or a cross of it. The crested looks like a crested pekin which can be possible if the parents are from Ideal. The other one almost looks buff or something.

    It looks almost like a buff duck, they are a breed.
