    The baby rouen that I had had yellow on its head and chest. I don't know about solid black. [​IMG]

    The ones with striped faces are rouens. The other is not. But it is cute anyway! [​IMG]

    I have to agree here....rouen babies have the stripes. Maybe there was a sneaky drake around :eek:

    Yup, baby rouens look like baby mallards and a few other breeds the black with yellow bellys and eye stripes.

    He or she could change to look more like a Rouen.
