    IMG_2031.JPG I got my duck april 7th and this is what they look like. I'm still unsure about the breed, i thought it was a khaki campbell but it has the stripes on the wings, and i still don't know the sex, please help me! thanks!

    I have one similar but instead of black on wing it's a bluegreen color and chest is lighter...I think someone said Rouen but yours has a bit of color difference but same markings on face minus green tint on bill which I just found out means it's a male. Very pretty! Is it small? Mine are a lot smaller than the other ducks and 2 are supposed to be Pekin.

    Those wing stripes look consistent with a khaki drake to me...the only thing throwing me off is the size. Swedish are supposed to be bigger....Maybe its just because he is in the foreground?

    I'm just getting in deeper since I joined BYC and get to see all the beauties! I guess I'm going to need more ducks....and probably a pond close to the house, they already fight over 3 pools and the geese think all water belongs to them.

    He looks like a Khaki Campbell drake to me. I'm not super familiar with them, so I could be wrong though.
