    Yesterday I bought 4 little ducklings from the "assorted duck" bin at the feed store. I have been going crazy trying to figure out what breed they are. Any guesses? [​IMG]

    1 is yellow with pink feet and beak. ( I'm guessing a Peking)
    And 3 have bluish feet and dark beaks with pink on the tip. Their bellies look yellow with grayish on their backs?

    I'm guessing Pekins and blue Swedish. They look pretty big already.

    Uuummmmmm Those look like Goslings not ducklings. I'm afraid you just bought a bunch of Geese. They are adorable though!

    That's a bummer! I hope they are ducks and not geese :-( My husband will be happy though.

    Thank you for your input. :) Do you think the yellow one is a goose too?

    Yes. I'd say it's a White Chinese Goose. But not positive on that. Ducklings are smaller, have rounder heads and flatter round little beaks.
