    One of my new ducklings has had its identity mystify me and I was wondering if anyone could help. I know that one is a female crested mallard, but I have no idea what the black one is. Could someone help.

    Is it truly black or a dark chocolate brown? I'd guess a khaki Campbell's.

    If it stands and runs around like your other duckling, Cayuga... if it is more upright than the other, Runner...
