    Duck 5 almost greenish colored with greyish feet and bill (rather then black)

    Awww, those are adorable! I can't tell you what each one is. One or two do look like runners and maybe the last one might be a muscovy because of the way the head and the bill comes together. I can't really look at the legs, but they look a little thicker than the others, too. I think you're right about the ones that are pekin.

    Maybe black or chocolate runners? I wonder if one is anacona, the spottie one.... Runners will run around alot more and be more upright than regular ducks..fawn and white or penciled ? My runners had their markings at birth... Yellow ones? Some kind of white duck.

    The only one I think I can relatively accurately ID is #2, which I would say is a Khaki Campbell.
    #4 is most likely just a Pekin like the one next to it. Remember, there are variations in breeds and every individual is different.

    The last one maybe a poor quality WH....

    Good Luck. They are cute! [​IMG]

    2, 3, 5 and 6 look like runners to me, just because they're quite upright, but I'm not certain. Extremely cute though, whatever they are! [​IMG]
