    Ok, just got three ducks. I will try to post pics, but cant do that till tomorrow. Would anyone have a guess of what breed with my best description?

    Happy- a yellow main body with black spots and black and yellow feet and beak. Very loud. Loves to run around.

    Latte- a brownish color all over with very dark beak and feet. Quieter, usually around the others. Larger than others.

    Donald- black all over, even feet and beak. Loud when held otherwise mainly quiet. Smaller like Happy.

    Oh, and when can you tell what gender they are? I am completely new so I dont know! Thanks everyone for your input. I will try to get pics tomorrow!

    Not sure on Happy but Lattee sounds like khaki, and Donald sounds like Cayuga, please post pics when you can, Doesn't sound like Happy is Pekin. Pics will help. Congrats on your new babies.

    Thanks for your reply! I will get some sometime today. I have work, so it will probably be latter in the day. I have heard of those breeds, just never seen them. I have a picture that looks like Donald but it is not mine. Got it off the Internet. [​IMG]

    Was it listed under Cayuga? solid blk all over including bill and feet makes me think Cayuga. I love that breed. course I love them all[​IMG] oh and if it stands upright then it could possibly be a runner. [​IMG]cayuga ducklings does Happy look like this [​IMG]if so Ancona is what she is.

    I don't know anything about Cayuga but it could be a black Indian Runner. Mine looked just like that when she was a few days old. I'm pretty sure Latte is a Khaki Campbell. They are adorable!
