    I got a great deal on ducklings at the small animal swap today. Unfortunately, I don't know my duck breeds, and apparently neither did the seller. Any ideas what these might be?
    The 2 in the front both have orange and black marbled legs. The larger one in the back has back legs and a yellow belly. The itty bitty one in the corner has a little bit of yellow on his chest, black legs, and is half the size of the other 3, but at least a day older.

    She said that the only thing they could not be is Muscovy, so it must be the blue and black swedish, probably mixed colors. Thanks!
    Any ideas on what itty bitty could be? He's about the size of my silkie chicks!

    I agree with KansasKid, the front 2 are Muscovies, and the back 2 look like Black Swedish. [​IMG] Very cute! [​IMG]
