    Hi everyone, I'm wondering if anyone has any idea what these little guys might be? I think I have an idea but would like to hear more opinions. They hatched two days ago.

    2 males, 1 female. Dark beaks are males, light are females. Only works within a couple days of hatching

    Thank you! That's my guess too. They all looked almost the same day of hatch and yesterday the two were noticeably darker.

    It could be wrong, but most people have around a 90% success rate with it. I assume my guess is right. I really hope you have fun with them, I love young ducklings:love
