    Sorry for all the pics. These guys/gals came from a shipment from Ideal's hatchery's mix of ducks... I'm guessing the dark one is a cayuga? Really have no idea... I don't know if you can see, but the bigger one is turning Buff colored and has a white ring around the neck...

    I think you've got the dark one spot on... Cayuga.

    The lighter one almost looks like a Buff or a Golden Layer.
    Maybe a fawn and white something?

    I am not sure what breeds were included in the mix you got from Ideal.
    Very cute babies, though!

    Thanks-- I think they are cute, too! I have been wondering if the buff/tan one might actually be a hatchery grade runner duck?

    looks like a Welsh Harlequin and a Cayuga. Congrats!

    {edit} oh... looks like they don't have Harlequin. Maybe the snowy Mallard... so pretty!

    I hate to have to tell you this, but I think one of your ducks is a turkey.

    Cayuga and Buff duck are probably a close guess.

    LOL! Yes, that's our tiny little poult. The turkeys went out of their way to adopt the two ducks for some reason...
