    Hi there I'm new to this site and have kept backyard chickens my whole life, more recently I have been keeping and breeding jumbo jap quail and just yesterday added 2 ducks to my urban farm. I believe they are a pekin cross but not sure what they are crossed with. Anyone want to have a guess?
    Thanks heaps!

    Sorry I don't have my ducks in a row, or know breeds except for mallard BUT, if you go to the Other Backyard Poultry forum above, there have threads on ducks, geese, guineas, quail etc. Something there may be able to answer your questions. Welcome to Backyard chickens. (and ducks, geese, emus, swans,....etc, etc.)

    Welcome to BYC![​IMG] I'm glad you joined us.

    I"m not sure what your ducks are. You may want to post in the Ducks section that Yorkshire Coop linked to.

    I'm not sure what breed (or mix of breeds) your ducks are, but I don't think they have any Pekin in them: they're too light in body and upright. They might be Runner duck mixes.
