    Quote:Thankyou, I was wanting kahki's but when I went to get them I wasn't sure if it was the lighter or the darker brown ones Im glad I got one, because we had a Kahki for 9 years and last year the neighbor's dog got him.

    i dont know but they sure are cute!! [​IMG] i got a baby that looks like moose. the rest are pekin. all of my smaller ones died [​IMG] i would think moose is cayuga. not sure if i spelled that right but go to mcmurray hatchery and maybe ideal poultry and you should be able to see pictures of the different ducks when they are babies. that might help you find out what goose is to!!

    So did you get these from a farm? Goose looks like a khaki cross. I just hatched out 2 yesterday and they are kind of the same color. They even have the same splotchy bill. Did they also have runners or buff ducks?

    Atwoods is like a Big R or Tractor Supply....right?

    In that case they probably got them from a hatchery so they wouldn't be mutts like mine.

    Hummm....it could be a blue swedish??

    Could be khaki campbell.....the hatcheries don't usually carry the best examples of purebreeds.
    Unless my computer screen is very messed up they aren't blue Swedish. [​IMG]
