Thank you very much! I'm gonna have to try this
I'm pretty sure the duckling you are describing could be an Ancona , since their feet and bills and mottled along with their plumage.They are also considered a mediumweight , so that could be why he is larger than the others.It's just a possibility , but I don't know for sure .
Or should I get a light breed flock?! If so which breeds?! I've heard light breeds tend to be more skittish is that true?
Cayugas aren't very big. Mine is actually the same size as my welsh harlequin, but I think she is just a tiny thing for her breed. Have you taken a look at this? It's a chart about a few different breeds. It's a generalization but can give you an idea about the different breeds. http://www.metzerfarms.com/DuckBreedComparison.cfm?CustID=4001403
Are you going to get any males? Staying around the same size is a good but if everyone is raised together the size dofference may not be as big of a deal.
It could still be Swedish, just probably black splash. Mine have mottled feet and legs.
I'm not going to get any males. But for my comfort I would like them to be all the same size or close. Should I do a heavy or large flock? Or should I just get one breed and if so which one?
Like I said , just a possibility , I haven't owned either so I'm not exactly an expert...
That is all up to you. I have a mixed flock and love them, but a lot of people get the same breed. It's all personal preference I believe buffs are also large, forgot about them. I'm sure there are a few others I'm forgetting about as well.
Well I think I'm either gonna get a rouen, a pekin, and a cayuga. Or three Pekins?!!! Input on this would be great!
