NEW PICS! So, here are my 5 black crested ducks from Ideal. What breed do we think they are?
the ones with white on the chest would be black sweedish.
and the all black ones woud be cayuga.
Look like my Indian Runner.
Do they have Green on the head? Looks like Cayugas and possibly a Black Swedish
Thing is, I raised Swedish in the past, and these don't have the body type to be swedish, but I think they all might be mixed. I thought cayuga also, but one of the all black ones is very much runner in shape and stance..... I think i need to take more pics, this one is a bit blurry.
Also, are not Cayugas shiny green? These are pretty much matte black.
hatchery birds are very poor quality.
but not ususally mixed.
I posted new pics, from the side. Maybe they are crested cayugas or cayuga mixes.
I agree - when I got them I expected to have some hatchery stock layers, but did not expect mixes, I have never gotten mixed ducks from a hatchery before. So thats why I wanted you all's opinions.
Oh, also - based on the type of duck, medium size, when should I expect them to start laying? They are about 3 months old now.
