    Can anyone help me identify the breed and sex of these two? I am thinking both female, maybe Rouen? 20190604_113605.jpg 20190604_113622.jpg

    About 12 weeks or so. Would we have to rehome the drake? The ducks and chickens all share the same run.

    Separated pens will be needed if you keep him. She definitely will need another Duck.

    @MagpieDucks I found a post that you said a similar duck to these was a Golden 300 hybrid. You seem to be known for knowing your stuff. What do you think?

    Do you have a picture of them as ducklings? I think they Campbells, even with the blue on the drake’s wing. Golden 300’s are a bit larger.

    One is definitely a drake? His color is so similar, though. Would he have gotten that dark hread/light body by now?
