    Is it possible to get a full body pic?

    My first guess is muscovy, but that is just a wild guess. I'd need to see her feet and the rest of her, too!

    Shots of her in different poses would be helpful too. Also, where did you get her? Sometimes that helps with an ID too, as feed stores tend to carry mostly the same common breeds, etc.

    She's cute. [​IMG] Is that a coturnix quail behind her? I'm guessing the quail is a couple weeks old? Be careful when brooding together--ducks get things very wet and mucky, and it can be very unhealthy for the quail chicks.

    Good luck with her!

    Behind it is a breed of chicken that starts with an A. They came from a feed store. I'll get more pics once I get home.

    Close. Araucuana. Same region. It is an easter egger too. Can't wait to see the eggs.
