    Can anyone help me figure out what breeds my ducks are? I'm pretty sure the yellow one is a runner duck, right? Also, does anyone know where I can buy duck diapers and harnesses? upload_2017-6-5_17-14-18.png upload_2017-6-5_17-23-26.png

    I really don't know much about ducks but, I think runner ducks have a much more UPRIGHT stance than that. Please post on the "duck thread," to ask experienced folks.

    If you ask on the "people with houseducks" thread, they can tell you where to get duck diapers. They are not cheap.

    I have the same two. The white one looks like a Perkins and the black and yellow looks like a mallard. But I am not sure. How old are they? The black and yellow if a female mallard will get green feathers on the head. If a male it will turn brown.

    This may be helpful for your harness and diaper needs, http://www.flightquarters.com/bird-diapers/category/duck-goose-diapers.html My laptop is being painfully slow, so I can only see part of the pictures because the rest won't load. I can't exactly tell what breeds of ducklings those are because it's so slow. I'll come back later, hopefully with information for you on what breed your ducklings may be, I have to restart the router and let the birds out of the coop, haha! :lol: Also, :welcome

    Okay. The laptop is going a little faster. The dark brown/black and yellow duckling looks like a Rouen duckling. The yellow duckling looks like a Pekin duckling.

    Are you sure the yellow one isn't an Aylesbury?

    I'm pretty positive it isn't an Aylesbury, your duckling has a darker beak than an Aylesbury duckling.

    Now he/she looks like this. I attached the pictures. I looked up Pekin ducks and hey don't look like this. None of them have markings like my duck has.

    Your duckling is developing his white feathers it looks like, Pekin ducks are white.
