    They're all grown up! Dave is still smallest and Haystack is still the biggest, but they've changed so much! Haystack has grown some very nice teal feathers! Sometimes they even look purple. [​IMG]

    So here are some pictures! They have a little tub to bathe in now too (hopefully a pool soon!) but I don't have pictures of that yet.

    Are these mallards or rouens? How old are they? Sorry for all the questions but I have a rouen about 10 weeks old and I'm still trying to figure out sex. I was wondering when you could start to see that white line of the neck? Thanks!

    Forgot to add they are beautiful duckies!

    Thanks everyone! They're my special ducks. I love the Khakis we have, but not as much as I love these three. [​IMG]

    They're actually Pekin x Khaki. Dave could be Runner x Khaki, but then I don't know where the white on her would have come from. Dave was born with the ring around her neck and actually turned out to be a lady duck. [​IMG] So is scuttle, and Haystack is a drake. I go by their voices. The girls actually have a clear, deep quack and the boys don't really quack. Haystack's voice is raspy and rather high pitched. [​IMG]
