    I am the proud owner of these three ducklings from Tractor Supply. Two are about 5 weeks old and the other is about 4 weeks. They are starting to get feathers but I am impatient lol! Anyone know what kind they are? I think the crested might be a runner? The black has a gray chest with a pink stripe running through it. I couldn't get the stripe to photo. Thanks for your help!

    I am guessing Rouen, Cayuga, and Crested Swedish.

    Agree with Amiga, but the first I think is a mallard. One eye stripe and looks like it is smaller than the duck behind it in the pic. Rouens will have 2 eye stripes and be a larger duckling.
