    [​IMG] The smaller duck in the center...not a runner, not a blue swedish... I was thinking Pekin but she's so small compared to the other ducks. from the time she hatched until about 3 weeks ago she looked like the runners. she really changed!

    Looks like a Peking to me, but I'd be interested to know as well.
     
  4. Hi! She's very pretty, but not something I recognize.

    Quote:I agree, she looks very similar. The ducklings at the bottom of the web page are so cute!

    I think its a buff duck. Its not a pekin though. They are snowy white.

    Its not a pekin and its not a buff. It is most likely a mixed breed, of the buff variation. A buff should be much larger than the runners and pekins bigger yet. Its probably a runner mix of some kind.

    That's what I thought too, kswaterfowl, probably a second generation Runner/Buff mix or something similar. It most likely is not a first generation cross as it does not show Runner pattern and the color most likely that would produce this color would be Fawn and White (unless of course one of the parent birds was a Fawn and White that was heterozygous for Runner pattern instead of pure- R/R). She's a pretty bird!
