    I was wondering if anyone might be able to guess what breed this little guy is. Just got him/her. :)

    Sure is a cutie, I am thinking Buff but GQ has Buffs so I asked her, hopefully she'll take a look.

    Welsh Harlequin was my first guess but the bill is throwing me off. Hard to tell from the pictures but the end of the bill is very light in color.
    Of course this is coming from someone who up until a few hours ago has only ever had chickens. :)
    Googled some Buff duckling pictures and some of them seem to have the same light tip... hmmm

    I don't think thats a buff. When my buffs were ducklings they did not have the dark head and they had a stripe behind their eyes. Due to the dark head I am thinking it is a welsh harlequin. She sure is cute though :).

    They don't know they couldn't even tell me what hatchery it came from. Got it and a mystery crested duck from Tractor Supply.
    I'm sure to find out soon enough when they feather out. :) Just a little curious and impatient.
    Whatever they are they are cute calm and friendly.
