    We've had them for 10 weeks so far and they should have been about 1-2 weeks old when we got them. the brown one should have been a bit older than the white duckling.

    This is how they used to be

    They are trhe cutest ducklings ever and love to cuddle [​IMG]
    .

    I think that they must be duck (chocolate barred) and drake (white) from I've read here so far but I still doubt it some times. :) The brown duckling is more "elegant" in the way it eats, walks while the white one is more clumsy and still waddles. Also his legs seem to be taller and still growing than those of the brown one.

    My two week old ducklings are the same colors as yours (in the first pic). Hope they turn out to be little beauties like yours [​IMG]

    Thank you for your kind comments. [​IMG] We took them to the stream we have just outside our yard last Sunday and they loved it! They didn't want to go back home! Next time I'll take my camera with me and I'll take some nice pics to show you! [​IMG]
