    Hello again ducklovers!

    I've been watching Sr Pato for days (which, incidentally, grows super fast!) And his fur is not the typical white Pekingese / domestic duck, but it is getting black and white, and on his chest, his feathers are white, black and brown (but the color in the same pen, not having feathers of different colors).
    Could anyone identify what type of duck (or mixture) it is?
    I don't find any similar:idunno
    Thank you so much:love:hugs

    I think Sr. Pato is a Muscovy Duck due to the large tail. @Miss Lydia has Muscovies.

    I assume he will be very colorful when grown up, he shows a lot of different down already.

    This duckling will not even resemble the colors we see now once feathered in it's amazing. Sure hope @SrPato lets us follow along.

    Yes!!! I just looked for a baby muscovy duck and it has the same plumage as Sr Pato!

    But the caruncles that appear in his face are very rare, I'm a little scared because it seems that something bad is happening:eek: When they grow up, can I touch it?:rolleyes:

    Thank you very much for helping me, I will upload photos of Sr Pato that grows at the speed of light:love

    Your duckling is beautiful, and that color is called barred black. :)
