    I'm confused. Are you asking a question or stating a fact?

    No there are white Runner ducks to not sure if TSC would sell them though. They didn't know what they had? There are also white Muscovy but never heard of TSC selling them. Most likely Pekin

    No they didn't know only one of my TSC knows what they have and they have only mallards and khakis the store with the yellow ducklings were clueless, really clueless they really couldn't even explain to another customer what type chicks were in all the bins

    And yes this year ours were not labeled with breed. They said hatchery didn't mark them.

    Ours had some yellow ducks that had some tannish stripes on their head. I remember my Pekins were solid yellow.
