    Hi- I got "ducks" at tractor supply this spring, they were not labeled as any[​IMG]

    specific breed. Since they were yellow turning white I assumed they were peckins, but now I'm pretty sure they're not. I have researched into domestic ducks and can't find a match. Closest I can find is a Muscovy since they have red skin on their faces, but Muscovy ducklings are usually darker right? Do I just have mutts?

    I am in no way an expert, but I believe Muscovy can be white. I think I remember reading about white muscovy.

    It looks like pictures of a French white muscovy. Try to look up some pictures and see if you agree. Hope I helped a little.

    Those are muscovies.

    I agree. I haven't had any scovies before though, so I can't say for sure.
