    Hello everyone! I was hoping to figure out what breed my duckling is. She’s ten weeks old, bought her as a khaki Campbell (definitely not) but then was told maybe blue Swedish (when she was a baby, she had the yellow bib fuzz)..now I’m unsure, as she has no bib whatsoever, the only white she has is little specks of it right on the outer edge of her bill. And she has a mixture of random black feathers thrown in, and some pretty neat feet I haven’t seen before. Also, her bill seems to be turning green, which would mean boy? But she quacks like crazy! Take a look :D

    Well it's not a Drake but an actual picture of the entire bird would be great..The green on its bill is algae..

    Here’s a full body I had from 2 weeks ago..I’ll try and get a good one today. When she was younger she always ran and walked almost straight up so I also suspected runner..

    Any idea why she’d have algae on her bill?

    Ducks shed their bills the same as we do our finger nails. The top coat sluffs off..
