    About a week ago I purchased these 2 cuties which I was told were about a week old, so in these pictures they are now 2 weeks old. Can anyone tell what breed they might be? My thoery is the black one (Daffy) might be Cayuga, and the other (Daisy)maybe Khaki Campbell?
    My daughters love these little guys! (Or girls) We have them inside at night with their heat lamp but since the Texas weather is already reaching 100 during the day, we have them in their temporary enclosure during the day with some shade, until the pond is finished.

    I think your guesses are right. You will be a able to tell for sure with the Cayuga when/if it gets beetle green feathers in the sunlight. If they quack they are girls and if they have a whispery voice they are boys but it might be too early to tell. Good luck with your duckies! [​IMG]

    The black one is definitely a Cayuga, but the other one looks a little too light-colored to be a Khaki. Maybe a Khaki cross?

    The black one is definitely a cayuga (I have 1) and the other could be a blue cayuga. Because it has the black feet and beak. My friend has a couple blue cayugas and they are that color.
