    We bought 2 ducklings from TSC this past weekend. I'm guessing the yellow one is a Pekin? But I'm having trouble figuring out what the dark one is. Anyone have any ideas? (We are new to this and the people at the store had no idea what they had)[​IMG]

    The yellow one is a Pekin. (You knew that already) I'm going to guess the dark chocolate colored one is a Khaki Campbell. I'm only guessing though. I'm no expert. It will be interesting to see what others say.[​IMG]

    Hoosiergal may be right. I checked out duckling pics from MM and it does look like a khaki campbell more than a cayuga. I am no expert either.

    i also agree, it looks like a khaki campbell to me. Cayugas are much darker

    I agree.....The chocolate one looks like a khaki campbell. This is what mine looked like at that age.

    I agree, most likely a khaki campbell. I have yet to find a feed store that has any cayuga babies [​IMG]

    I got what I think are two cayuga babies at my TSC...they are pitch black, black beak, black feet. Not a spot of any other color on them.

    Beautiful beautiful babies. Here is a pic of my cayuga George. (I think) next to a younger duckling that I believe is a Runner (stands up so tall all the time, looks like a bowling pin). You can see the Runner is brown next to the black Cayuga.

    This was in Knightdale, NC.

    P.S His name is George, because I want to hold him and squeeze him and love him.
