    Long story short a neighbor down the road bought 3 ducklings and 2 goslings, and her mom said no, so I got them.
    I called the feedstore to see about breeds and they said ducklings(exect for mallards) are sold as hatchery choice and could be anything and goslings are either Africans, Brown chinese or white chinese.

    The yellow ducklings has a white tuff on its head, does this mean its going to be crested?
    I'm leaning towards the brownish duckling to be a Khaki Campbell and the black one to be a Cayuga,but I'm not sure. I'm hoping the yellow one isnt a pekin,but with my luck it is.
    The goslings appear to be the same breed,but again, I'm not 100% sure.

    I have to take pictures from my cell phone, I'm sorry they arent too good.

    Think you are right on the ducklings even the crested pekin.
    Goslings look like African, if brown chinese their neck will be longer.

    if the black is solid black it's a cayuga, the brown is a khacki, and the other I can't tell, either a blue swed. or a pekin,

    not sure with goslings.

    Thanks [​IMG]

    I know the yellow one isnt a blue Swedish, it wouldnt be solid yellow like it is.I've hatched enough blue swedish to know what they look like.
    The black one has a patch of yellow on its chest,but that still doesnt rule out being a cayuga,but I'm also leaning toawrds it being a Black Swedish.

    Cayuga are black but can be a little lite on the Chest. If it has a good patch on it chest it is probably a black Swedish.

    The patch is pretty good sized,but doesnt take up the whole chest.Its a complete circle.

    I'll try to get a better picture of them. I have to cell my cell phone for now, so the pictures arent very good.
