    Hello,
    I'm Jenn! I'm very new to raising any type of "backyard birds"! So how did I acquire these cuties? Well a little about me! I am 20, and in school to be a vet tech (house pets, clearly, not very educated on birds aside from knowing how to care for them). I LOVE animals and the whole neighborhood knows it! Unfortunately, that means I am a "dump site" for many unwanted critters! So today I received a box on my door step! I'm used to it I figured it was kittens since kitten season is here! To my surprise it was two little ducklings!! They are so precious! They were shivering and I honestly didn't think they would make it they are so teeny. They only look days old. So, after food, water, pine bedding, and a nice warm lamp they are feeling much better! And I'm so glad that 9 hours later (now) they are doing well! So! I know the picture kind of stinks, they are huddled together. So to describe a little of what you may not be able to see in the picture:

    Coloring: Very Fluffly down, brown all over and *slightly* lighter brown on the bellies (by no means would I say yellow, just a lighter brown). The sides of their eyes have a "mask" look to them. There are a couple streaks of *dark* yellow.
    Feet: Webbed Feet, tiny toe nails
    Beak/Bill: Dark brown bill
    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your help! :)

    Could you post a picture with the light turned off? That would make them easier to identify :)

    I agree with Papagena. Look like my khaki Campbell's when they were ducklings.

    Oh yes of course! Now inspecting them closer I'm unsure if they are the same breed, hmmm :/ but here are the pictures of them!

    #2 looks Khaki.
    #1 looks too light for Khaki.
    If they're from same hatch, maybe they're mix.
    Either way they're cute.
    I'll even go as far as guessing #1 Drake, #2 Hen...so you'll have to update again in a couple months. ;-)
