    Hi, I'm very excited to be the new owner of two Ducklings. They were in need of a new home and we were very happy to have them.
    But we haven't been given much information about them. Could you please help me - does anyone know how old they may be and what breed of duck??
    I was told they were 8-9 weeks old and gressingham ducks (but I dont think that is even a breed - more a good company!!). And I read a few forums which is making me also think they are actually younger than this and they should be more white and feathered by 8-9 weeks - I've learnt they grow very quickly.

    Any advice would be much appreciated - thank you.

    Here are a few pictures - I have more if these aren't too clear.

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. Sorry I don't know much about ducks, so please post on the "Duck thread." Just put that in the searchbox and it will come up.

    [​IMG] so glad you have joined us.

    I don't know anything about ducks, but those two cuties look very young to me and agree with you not likely over a couple of weeks old.


    Good luck with your new ducklings.
