    I got them as ducklings and thought topknot was a girl,named her Gladys, Know I know it is a drake, so name is TopKnot, or occassionally William.
    The other black one I was sure Swedish, and thought it was a boy, named him Swede. Now changed that to Sweedie, as she is laying eggs. But Grey ones. Seem to be getting darker as she grows. She has a white chest, which is not common to cayuga's.
    Here are a few pictures. Taken today at 6 months old.
    Anybody have a clue on the breed? [​IMG] The brown ducks are Khaki Campbells, and I have one Buff Orpenington. But what are these 2 dark ones. I included a picture of Sweedie's eggs next to 2 white duck eggs.

    The black and white one looks like a Swedish duck?
    And I think the one with fluff on its head is a crested duck
    Goodluck

    Thanks. I didn't think that swedish laid grey eggs, thought that was only cayuga.
    But I did more research after your comment and found that Black Swedish can sometimes lay grey eggs,
    As for TopKnot. I know he is a crested duck, just not sure what breed. Crested ducks can show up in most breeds from what I see.
    Could he be a crested Black Swedish? Or Blue Swedish? or another breed altogether? Starting to think he may be black swedish, too,

    hi there
    thankfully we know what 1 breed is.
    As for the crested on I am not sure.
    Maybe someone else can help with that one.
    goodluck.
