    I was just wondering because we thought about getting ducks one time.

    Congrats! They are very cute. Looks like kitty is waiting for you to open the top of the brooder for a minute. [​IMG]

    I know this sounds stupid, but I thought that Mallards had more yellow on them.

    I was just thinking of the Mallards that I had. They had a lot of yellow on their heads and their feathers were more brown. I was just wondering if maybe he told you the wrong kind or something. Like if its a Cayugas or something. Either way ducks are really cute and a lot of fun to have around!

    that may be true. He didn't seem to know for sure. It will be fun to see what our ducks turn out to be.
