    Hi all.
    We've had a new duckling given to us, can anyone help us identify?

    Well, 'splash' is light brown with a pale yellow chest.
    Dark brown bill with one light spots around the edges.
    I'll post a photo when I can.

    Could be a Swedish, could be a Cayuga... could be a mix. Either way it will grow up to be a mostly black duck.

    Yeah our last baby was a Kc, beautiful ducks :)
    Poor little splash was from a kids petting farm and is super scared of everything. Slowing winning him over with treats and love :)

    Not brown?
    I'd love a black duck in the mix :)

    Poor lil splash, I'm glad you got to bring him home. I just saw you have ducklings hatching too. cool splash will have some friends to pal around with.

    Splash will get to meet his adoptive brothers and sisters tonight. Can't wait to see them all together and out of the incubator :D :D
