In the Brooder
- Apr 13, 2014
We got 3 new ducklings at the feed store the other day. This is our first time with ducks, so it's all new to us. I assumed at the store that since they were yellow they must be pekin. When we got home and I really got to looking at them and getting to know them better, I don't feel they are pekin. If I had to guess I would say 2 are buff (one has a pink beak and one orange). The third one seems to keep himself more upright than the other 2. I am wondering if he could be a runner. He does seem to be the watch duckling and protect the other 2 so I am not sure if he just stands taller because of that. I am also wondering why one has a pink beak and the other orange. Could this be a way to determine male/female? If so which is female?
