    I thought for ever that Flip and Flop were Anconas or Magpies but now im not so sure. Thats an aweful lot of green sheen in their feathers. This is Flop below vvvvv

    I'm more of a chicken person, but looking real close I'd have to say that is a duck.

    Wish I knew. I'm trying to figure mine out too!

    They are so much more playfull than chickens. They just love to try to sit in the water!

    Looks and sounds suspiciously like a Muscovy, especially when you mentioned the green sheen. But, I don't see any crinkling around her face, but sometimes female Muscovies don't have that much. Other than that, I don't know.

    We have a Magpie / Cayuga cross. He has the greenish sheen of the cayuga with the Magpie coloring. Really pretty duck.

    Flop's sister, Flip, is similar byut she is mostly white with just a few black and green spots on her. Definately NOT muscovy... Very loud quacker, and no "facial leperacy".

    My black anconas have a bit of green shine on their wings and backs - I assumed all black ducks did!
