    Took two grandchildren into TS to pick up chicken feed on Valentines Day and came out with feed and these two when they were about three days old. (Obviously these are more recent pics.) Don't know what we have, but we are really enjoying them. Didn't know about the niacin so will pick some up today. They only get out to the pond on warm sunny days at the moment. Can't wait till the warm weather is here to stay. They are a hoot!

    The one on the right is a Mallard; not sure about the other, maybe Ancona. Both are adorable though! :)

    Both are very cute, my first thought was Ancona for the yellow headed duck. But I could be wrong I am far from an expert when it comes to breeds. So cute.

    Thank you cymbaline and Apyl. I thought the brown was a mallard. The yellow is starting to turn white where the yellow is and getting green on it's wing tips. They are so cute together. Last night when I went to bring them in they hopped up on my lap and lay down. Completely melted my heart!

    The brown could also be a Rouen. They have 2 eye stripes, mallards have 1. Rouens are also about twice their size. The other could be a mismarked Ancona, Swedish, Runner or Magpie. Hard to say when young and size is hard to determine in a pic. It is cute though.
