    We have chickens but we are new to ducks. So when we saw these 2 cute little black ducklings at Tractor Supply all alone in a sea of yellow of course we came home with them. We were hoping the might be Cayugas but as they have gotten larger we have been trying to research what they could be and are kind of stumped.

    They are definetely not Cayugas, because they would have to be solid black with a green gleam, but these remind me of dusky campbell ducks.

    They do kind of look like dark Campbells... And is it just me, or does it look like you have a drake and a hen? Sorry, don't have any other ideas.[​IMG]

    We think the larger one with the half white circle around the neck is a drake. It does look like he has the little curl forming on his tail.

    *most* of the Tractor Supply ducks are in the Cambell family it seems. Cayugas tend to be a bit stubbier from my understanding, not as slim and long as the campbells
