    I got sucked in by these adorable ducklings at TSC last night. They were listed as Pekins, but the guy that worked there said he accepted the delivery and the box was labeled as Khaki Campbells. I have KC and I'm fairly certain that they are not. With that being said, I only have a year of duck experience. I have my KC and Muscovies, and we had Pekin last spring. These little guys are smaller and more delicate-looking than the Rouens and they all have a mask to some degree. A few of them have very faint eye stripes, all in that silvery tan color which is also on their backs. Their bills are pinkish tan, as are their legs. A few have beaks that are a little more yellowish, but none are bright. I know we can't really ID them until they start feathering out, but can I rule out Pekin?

    Yes. Perkins are all yellow, they do not have the grayish mask.

    Thank you so much! One week later and they are really starting to look like runners. Please excuse the bad pics, they are also much harder to take pics of because they are so wiggly lol.
