    My husband and I decided to get ducks this time instead of chickens. They were just too adorable to pass up. Anyone know what these are? Thank you in advance.[​IMG]

    Oh how cute! I just got ducks too. Love them so much!
    Something alot sweeter about ducklings compared to chicks.
    I think i see rouen ducklings - the ones with stripes-
    And the yelow may be a pekin.. depends on the color of its beak and legs. And if its pure yellow?
    The yellow with black spots on their head look like maybe magpie ducklings?
    Someone more experienced will prob know for sure:) how exciting!!

    Yep, I'd say one Rouen, one Pekin, and the rest probably Magpies....[​IMG]
