What am I? Likely a mix. Not a clue.

    Swapped quineas for juvie ducks.
    Just wanted a few for my lil farm pond.
    Thought they called them cayuga or muscovy.
    Supposed to be a drake and 6 girls.
    I'm thinking have to be some kind of mix or what ever with all the color variations.
    One mostly white with light milk chocolate tips that has gone almost all white.
    One started mostly chocolate.
    Others darker with greens, teal and purples tossed in.
    Love the colors! Just clueless what they might be.

    Any guesses?
    More pictures under my duck album - have yet to learn how to load pics to threads.
    Thanks!

    It's pretty easy to tell with scovies, the females make a trilling sound and the males do a hoarse hissing or heavy breathing sound. Also the males have thicker legs.

    It's fun learning about the birds and other critters on the farm here. All the little bits and pieces, nuances, dietary and habitat requirements. They've just started getting the red fleshies but there was some small difference in ages to start. So looking at that and legs. They've really changed colors in the couple months since they came. Neat stuff for sure.
