    We have bought quite a few ducks from Atwood's recently. Our first purchase turned out to be 4 Pekin ducks. We have purchased Guineas from them which of course were easy to figure out. However, we purchased some black ducks from them a few weeks ago and we're not really sure what is their breed. We first thought it was two Cayugas and two black sweedish but now we're not sure they run like runner ducks and two of them are crested. Two are solid black and the two crested both have yellow on their breast area, but one has much more than the other.

    Here is the solid black with no crest.

    This chicken actually came from TSC. We bought 3 pullet leghorns, a barred rock hen and RIR hen. Not sure what this one is though. We were hoping maybe a Silver Laced Wyndotte?

    These two chicks came from Atwoods as well. They were banded as pullets. Production Red's maybe?

    Here is another pic of the black ducks all together.

    Can't help you with the ducks, but yes, that is a silver laced wyandotte, and production reds.

    They kind of look like runners, but likely not that great of quality or mixed. My best guess is runners, and perhaps the 4th is a blue swedish crested runner cross??? Cute though. [​IMG]

    Thank you for the responses. After seeing the ducks run instead of waddle like our Pekins do, we figured they were runners. And judging from the pictures we saw online and researching we figured they were some kind of mix. Thanks to both of you for the answers on our chickens and ducks.

    I really hope we have two cayuga's but they sure do move like runners.

    The 2 black one's look like Cayuga and and the other2 looks like a Black Swedish. Two look like they have a crest! Very pretty.
