    Jayare, what do you think about the question marks? Notice the different colors of the bills and feet.

    I have lots of chickens including about 70 fuzzy butts right now but these are our first ducks. They are cute now that they have dried and fuzzed, when they first hatched, I knew where the phrase "ugly ducklin" comes from.. [​IMG]

    Very cute. I'm jealous you got so many pure Khakis. So is that 3 or 4 Khakis you got?
    Yes, that next 1 is from my Peking. (and very cute)
    Looks like the rest are from my Magpie. Hard to see the last duck because it is a front on shot and not side profile. I was trying to see if any came from my Mallard but it don't look like it. So looks like all came from Khaki momas.

    Good Job.

    Out of the 7 I hatched under a broody hen 3 were pure Khakis (1 was killed by the chickens after it hatched [​IMG] ) 1 was a Khaki/Peking mix, 2 were Mallard/Magpie mix and the other was a Khaki/Magpie mix

    Cute little buggers, but they can certainly ruin a back yard if they are not penned.

    They make such a mess in the bator when hatching also compared to chickens.
