    Any thoughts about colour/pattern? What are we, & and what makes us different?

    I would have said Khaki's too. But different markings on their faces. Very pretty!

    They do sort of look like campbells, but I think they are a bit too large to be pure. They seem to have some similarities to the buffs, so maybe campbell buff crosses?

    Another of your experiments Rollyard... I will be patiently waiting your reply and explanation of genetics- and especial who the father was of the daughters. Interesting enough- I currently have some Runners a very similar colour to the younger, I know the parentage of mine- and am not surprised with the outcome. The ducklings from my pair are pretty accurately colour sexed with the males all being much darker than the females. Have you by any chance found the same with these ducklings- I assume you did also get males in the hatch- or were you lucky enough to just have some girls hatch?

    They are a bit darker than my buffs, but my buffs are still young. I would say Khaki/ buff cross or dark buffs. Really pretty!
