    I am inquiring about the two bigger ducks (The black and the buff color). The little ones are Khaki Campbells. Now the bigger buff LOOKS like a Khaki but has yellow tipped wings and feet are black and orange. (The baby Khaki's have black feet.) The big black one has same yellow tipped wings and black and orange feet as well. ANY IDEA'S????? [​IMG]

    I can tell you, that you DON'T have any Blue Swedish!! Those are the only type of ducks I've raised from ducklings and yours look nothing like them. But they sure are cute!!

    Look like my Campbells when they were that age, the drakes feet and coloring start changing at around 6-8 weeks. I don't know about the yellow tipped wings though.

    Mixed. The multicolor feet is a sign of a cross. The black one looks kinda of like a hatchery quality cayuga with the green bill but has orange feet so probably a cross as well.

    They are so cute! My guess is possibly indian runners? Indian runners stand more erect than other ducks. Or maybe they only look erect because they were posing for the camera.
    Either way, I am sure you will enjoy them!

    Oh yeah! I forgot to say they did mention they were runners. I'm pretty sure they had Cayuga, Khaki, Indian runners...not sure what else. But they were all mingling together so I'm almost positive at this point that they are mixed. It's nice to have an idea of what they are though. Is it true that a mommy duck can hatch a clutch of ducks but some may have different daddies?

    Yes, a clutch of eggs can have the same biological mother and different biological fathers.
