    Another guess, Buff Laced Polish??

    What about White crested black polish??

    And the last chick....maybe Black Silkie??

    Last duck - magpie jumped in my head!

    The black chick looks like a cochin to me.

    And you definitely have some polish, I can't really tell on the first pic - but, looks like a white and the second - I'm not sure.. could be WC Black or SL... I don't know!

    the first duck could be a swedish or khaki campbell.
    the second I'm thinking is a magpie.
    good luck though!

    Thanks so much!
    I looked up pics of the magpie, what a beautiful duck! I hope it is one, I couldn't find pics of ducklings to compare. Anyone else have suggestions on the chicks?

    The spotted duckling looks like an Ancona. If he is your lucky-they're great!

    I just received some ducklings and your second looks exactly like our Maggie (Magpie).

    Read up on the messiness of the ducklings. It is all true. While the ducklings don't seem to care, the chicks really should not get wet. You will need to keep on top of the wetness in the brooder. But I love our ducklings.

    Well, the feet on my spotted duck sure matches the Ancona. Either way, Magpies & Anconas are both beautiful. I can't wait to see how these babies turn out. My son, who's 5 just named him Mudpie. LOL As far as messes, so far they are not bad. I'll keep a close eye out though.
    I'm beginning to agree with the black cochin chick. Don't silkies have extra body parts?

    #2 is a Ameraucana without a doubt. I have some that look identical.

    Quote:I thought it could be Ameraucana also.

    I see you have French Guineas. I have 6 keets out in the brooder, about 2.5 weeks old. They are hilarious! They take a running start, and then slide down half the brooder on their tummies. They are the messy ones!!
