    ok so my girlfriend went to the feed store without me today and said they had a lot of new ducklings. She told me they had these two with red faces that someone reserved.. Said it was red on the top by the bill. What ducklings have a red face?

    They could be muscovies, but usually really young ducklings don't have the red face.

    If they are ducklings, they should not have their "red" face yet. How old are they?

    They probably just had dye dots on their heads marking wehther their girls, boys, or breed. Ideal Hatchery does this with their ducks. It fades within 3-4 weeks
