    Hello everyone I am a new member but I look on here often for help. I purchased two ducks from tractor supply today. I was wondering if anyone could give me an idea on what breed they are. Thank you :) it has an eye stripe but it's not very dark as some of the others so I don't know if it is a Mallard or not. [​IMG][/IMG]

    Tractor Supply in my area only sells certain breeds in their straight run pens. I asked today which breeds my TSC had and they sell Mallard, Rouen, Khaki Campbell, Swedish and Pekin. From the looks of your babies my best guess is the striped one is either Mallard or Rouen and the dark one is a Khaki Campbell.

    aodrable, but i think you have either a rouen with some pastel rouen heritage, becuase that alot of yellow and how my gray/pastel rouen babies looked, or a number of things such as golden 300 , maybe welsh harlequin, either way there is a small chance of it being a mallard its too big.
