What breed are my duckling


May 2, 2015
Hi it bought 2 ducklings and was wondering the breed if anyone could help it would be great thanks
Are they supposed to be the same age? I don't know about ducks but, you can find great duck threads on BYC at "Other Backyard Poultry" forum above. They re real cuties.
Welcome to BYC!

I've never had ducks (just chickens...so far, lol) but the little ones are so cute. @drumstick diva has made a good suggestion, try posting a photo of your birds over on the duck forum and see what they say:

Nice to have you join us, I hope you're enjoying the ducklings!
The duckling on the left with the black markings is likely a Magpie or Ancona. I would lean toward Magpie based on the patterning, but it's difficult to tell at such a young age.

(This is a link to a forum discussing the difference between Magpies and Anconas: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/726720/magpie-or-ancona )

As for the duckling on the right...my best guess would be a Welsh Harlequin based on the purple-ish colored bill and darker feet.
