    Just finished my introduction..now my first question..

    What are my ducks??

    We were literally handed these ducks about 3 weeks ago. Was at a farm store, lady (i thought jokingly) asked "do you want ducks" ..said yes but not at the moment and before I could finish she opened her trunk and pulled them out with cage and 1 bag of food. So here we are.. I don't know anything about them, no idea what breed...

    They were very scared the first week or more, now seem to be getting more comfortable..but I want to know more

    Breed? Age? Anything?

    One is a Buff. Not sure the other. My Butter duck for comparison.

    1-2 year old. The silverish one- does it wver stand very upright, like a penguin? It could be a Runner then.
    It could also be a mixed breed, Swedish Blue

    I have noticed the blue one standing more upright at times, thanks for the information at least I've got a starting point.
