    Hard to tell from the picture. Is it a dark brown? Because then my guess would be Khaki Campbell, but if it is truly black it could be a Cayuga. Then again depending how it stands it could very well be a Runner Duckling. Do they stand really straight upright?

    From the description then, I would say it is most likely a chocolate Runner duckling, I have bought Runners from TSC before, and they definitely aren't show quality, and don't stand up as straight as the breed should. Otherwise I would stick by Khaki Campbell.

    I second the request for more photos! (for the sake of identification also just because they are cute [​IMG])

    Looks like it will grow into a beautiful adult. I vote Chocolate Runner.
