    Hello, I am new to this site and new to geese and ducks.Here are pictures of my motley Crew. I have 3 ducks and 2 geese.I have a pond and thought it would be a good addition. I have a potbellied pig too. They were all tiny babies when I got them and it took forever for them to get feathers. My smallest duck is obviously a little mallard hen, but I have no idea about the others! The two geese look completely different and the grayish one is huge! They are all really sweet and stay in a group even when we take walks. If anyone knows what they are please help! [​IMG]

    The grey duck is a Blue Swedish, the light duck is a Fawn and White Runner, the darker gosling is most likely an African, and from my best guess, the white gosling might be an Embden.

    I agree with all the above except about the blue swedish - no white chest patch, so it's not a swedish. It's also black, not blue. Could be a cayuga, possibly, or a black runner if you see it standing upright like the other runner does.

    My vote is Cayuga, from what I can see of the bill and head structure and body stance...

    Thank you all. They are all so adorable, but what a motley crew! Hopefully their temperaments are good!The Gray goose thinks I'm it's mother and the others think the gray one is their mother! Silly little bunch!
