    Hi All,
    Just picked up these two little cuties at TSC and have no clue what they are! The black one looks much darker than my khaki was at the same age, and I am at a complete loss on the other little one.

    The black one could be a Cayuga.

    Here's mine as babies:

    They black one looks to be a black runner or cayuga, and the other one looks like a welsh harlequin.Look up a picture of a harlequin duckling on the internet, and see if it's a mach.

    Thanks, everyone!
    Yes, I'm leaning towards Cayuga on the black one because she doesn't stand up tall like a runner would...she's kind of squatty! lol I looked up Welsh harlequin ducklings and they sure do look like my baby! Looking forward to seeing them grow up (although at the same time, I want them to stay so tiny and adorable forever!)

    It could still be a runner. My runner did not start standing up high as a baby and still does not as she is not show quality.
