    My little ducklings are absolutely darling! Two of thm are darker than the other three though, having dark lines along the eyes and down the back with a darker beak..it has me wondering: is this a gender thing? I got some pictures but they don't show the differences as dramatically as you can see in person.

    Oh they are so cute. Can't go by the color. I've noticed that many of my males where whistlers when they were young. Or better they copied my whistling, while the girls never did.

    They are cute. Can't wait to get mine from Holderreads.

    I am curious about one thing...Is that a QVC rug your ducklings are on? [​IMG]

    I'm not sure what kind of rug it is, my parent's owned a carpet cleaning company for 40 years and this was one that never got picked up before they decided to close up shop. I do know it's an oriental and worth some serious $$$, probably less now that my two kids have been around LoL
