    Oh, such pretty ducks!

    To me, they look like runner mixes. Khaki Campbells were bred from runners, mallards and rouens, so there may be some KC in there. The colors just don't look like Khaki to me.

    I have seen white and blue runners that have pretty much those colors. And what are called pet quality or hatchery quality runners don't always have the very upright stance that the show quality runners have.

    The shape of the white one's face and the set of her eyes especially remind me of my Elfie, a chocolate runner.

    Very sweet!

    Do they look like hens? Drakes?. They are about 5 weeks. The dark one began quacking 2 days ago. The light one is still cheeping.

    Girls quack. Boys - from what I've read - continue to peep for a bit and then develop a raspy mumbly voice.

    I saw that bib and thought blue swedish, too, but then some runner mixes have a bib of sorts.

    blue sweedish.
    and probably too soon to tell on gender. once they get their full feathers in, if they're drakes, they'll have a pair of curled up feathers on their back just above their tail. girls don't get curls.
    and yes, girls quack LOUD and boys rasp and sound like marlon brando in The Godfather.

    I think they are ducks but I'm not sure. [​IMG] In all honesty I'm not sure but they do seem like they enjoy each others company.
