    I have never had ducks before. Only chickens. How can you tell the sex? These are about 4 weeks old. What are they going to look like? I would love to see your pics. The little yellow had wry-neck when I got him. He is 100% now. I love them! Got any name ideas?

    I think the yellow one is a Bali Duck or a Crested Duck.Related to Runners, but Runners don't have crests.

    They are adorable. They will be growing way too quickly and before you know it they will be fully feathered.

    Here are some pics of our group of runner.

    This picture was taken on March 27th. Sorry not too clear. I wish I could make them small again to get a better picture.

    And now look at them. These were taken on April 25th when they were about 5 weeks old.
