    The baby on left is about 7 weeks. The other is the Mom she looks rough cuz she is molting i think. I thought the Mom was a Rouen but someone ask me if she was a Butterscotch Rouen. She is usually a lighter color. Is there such a thing as a Buttersotch Rouen?

    I agree they are probably mixed. From the body stance I would guess production Rouen crossed with Khaki. In all my years, I haven't ever hear of butterscotch Rouens. Here is a pic of female Butterscotch call ducks.
