    I just got these 7 ducks. I haven't had ducks in several years. I'm trying to figure out what they are. I'm sure the white ones are Pekins. Is the black one a swedish or magpie? The brown and white spotted one a welsh harlequin?[​IMG]

    The black one is a black Swedish, and white ones are Pekins, and yes, I think that the brown and white spotted one is a Welsh Harlequin. I'm not sure about the other brownish ducks in the flock, though.

    It looks like you have three Pekins (the white ones), a black Swedish (black and white one), a Welsh Harlequin, and a Khaki Campbell. The only duck that I am not sure about is the mostly brown one with a ring of white around its neck.

    The brown ones both actually have white on the neck. I was thinking Khaki but doesn't seem right. They came from a hatchery.

    They could be the hatchery's version of Khaki Campbells. Hatcheries tend to breed more for quantity and production, and not show-quality.
