    My newest babies! Just to verify, they both are Mallards correct? One stripe on the eye means Mallard, two means Rouen?

    Cute! They certainly look like Mallards.

    Yay! I picked them out hoping I scored. There were Rouens in the mix as well. I was relying on research. :D

    The eye stripe test is not 100% valid so just keep that in mind.

    Were they smaller than the Rouen's in the mix?

    Yep, they were itty. That's why I chose them. One stripe and smaller than the others. But, now with the stripe not being 100% said, guess we will have to wait until their plumage changes!
