    The one that isn't a Butterscotch looks like a Blue Fawn. [​IMG]

    Congrats! They're gorgeous!

    Can anyone tell me if any of these ducklings are show quality? Not realy major shows, just like local fairs and such... And if so, how do i get them show ready?

    Thanks again.

    re: showing -- I've had sort of a similar question. Our local fair has had precious little in the some of the fowl exhibitions I've been to. I think it's great for people to see the amazing variety of ducks and chickens (always one of my favorites when I went as a kid). I have some nice Runner ducks and Silkie, Polish and porcelain d'uccles chickens, but not necessarily show quality. I've been tempted to enter them just to give a bit more variety at the exhibits. Are there any of you who show at local fairs who have an opinion on that?

    Not meaning to get off topic - I think these call ducks are gorgeous and I would love for an opportunity to see something like them at our local fair (though I know precious little about actual standards).

    Quote:they are pretty nice type wise and have nice heads, but the color is way off for a butterscotch......
    they would do just fine in local fairs.... we show to have a good time and meet lots of people.... kids really enjoy it too.
