    We got some chicks and ducklings about a month and a half ago. The 2 ducks were supposed to both be white pekins but one is getting dark. It's so weird, it's happening very gradually. Now that I'm looking at pics when we first got her she had a bit of dark on her face then too. Here's a baby pic and a couple from today. Does anyone know what breed this is??

    IDK, did they come from a hatchery? I would call them, or email them, with the pic and ask. She sure is pretty though! [​IMG]

    I agree it looks like a runner cross but Not Fawn and white....maybe blue or grey even possibly and white but not fawn ....fawn is a very light tan.

    Thanks everyone!! This is our first time having chicks and ducks so I am totally lost with all of the different breeds!! lol We got her at our local co-op so I doubt they would know much about the breed, their sign had said all the ducks were pekins....wrong!! After looking at some pics and info online I think she is a runner/pekin cross. She is smaller than the other pekin and she also stands a bit more upright when she walks around. I'm curious to see what she will look like when she is full grown.
