    Hi! These are my babies, but I'm not sure what breed they are and I'm really curious. Does anyone have an idea what they are? Thank you!

    Gorgeous babies! Look like Muscovy to me... I love the pattern on the black and white one... :)

    Here's a pic of when they were a little younger. They're the sweetest, funnest ducks I've ever had. They literally dive into their swimming pool, right over the side, and they love to poke and pull on me. They're adorable.

    Thank you for your reply, RavynFallen. I'm sure you're right about them being Muscovy. They have a darker, raised ridge along the top of their bill, and they have claws. My mom loves the pattern on the black and white one, too. It's very pretty.
