    Looks like its stance is too upright for Khaki Cambell but I'm definitely NOT an expert by any means. Looks like a barnyard duck t me but don't know the name of the breed. sorry

    Devinandfeather, whatever you duck is, it's a good looking duck! It could be a mix, definitely more of a runner stance.

    An update on Ana. Today her breathing is totally normal! I just went and grabbed her and held her a bit. I still put a little Apple cider vinegar in the jug for them this morning. I figure it can't hurt and she was a little stuffy this weekend, but you could tell it was almost gone. She still has all her energy and we still get an egg a day!

    I Just adopted 3 ducklings from the pet store. Someone found the dead mother and her ducklings and surrendered the ducklings to my feed store. Can anyone tell me what type of duck this is? Thanks!! [​IMG]

    They look like my mallards when they were little.

    That's what I thought. I guess I can release them after a few weeks of nurture? They're not really liking us lol. Very scared of us. Anyhow, I'll do my research but wondering if they lay pretty well? Maybe we will keep. But at this point just wanting them to be healthy and pretty!

    If you decide to release them please wait till they are feathered in and able to fend for themselves, which will be more like around 12 weeks. But they will get easier to live with once they get use to their surroundings. They look to be between 2-3 weeks old,

    Yes I have a fairly large coop that I will release them to once they are done with brooding. Then I will wait until they lay their spring eggs (if female) and then introduce them to their new pond where many other mallards and flock are. Or better yet find someone local who will want.
