    This morning, I got two chicks and two ducklings. The ducklings were assorted. One of them looks like a khaki campbell, and I'm not sure about the other. Here some pics of her/him.

    Any thoughts, I was thinking it might be a welsh harlequin but I'm not exactly sure. If they were assorted, could they be mutts? Or pure breed, they just don't know exactly what breed?

    Looks like a Khaki and a Buff. Actually looks just like some of the ducklings we dropped off at the feed store for them to sell.:D

    Buff Orpongton ducks is their full name. Goto Metzers web site and you can see what they look like as ducklings and adults.

    It doesn't show them as a duckling. Oh well, I guess time will tell :D

    Okay, what about now?

    When we first got her, her beak was purple and pink. Now it is turning purplish/black. I was looking at picture of welsh harlequin and buff ducks and I noticed that the female welsh harlequins have black beaks and all of the buff ducks orange beaks. Does this mean she is a welsh harlequin? Or is it just like that? From what I saw it looked more like she was a Buff Orpington, so I figured she was. Now her beak has thrown me off.....
