    I'm not familiar with ducks, so no help there. I don't know on the little chicks either but i am anxious to find out because they are precious. The other two I would say Barred Rock and RIR. [​IMG]

    The ducks look like the Mallard duckling we have. I've never seen the other breed of duck you mentioned since I'm new to all this

    your EE's are not EE's. They have green legs and different markings. no 2 are the same. you have Silver Campine


    your RIR may be a RIR or production red sex-link

    The barred one could be a Dom or a Barred rock. "she" has very thick legs so watch for the comb and wattles to appear. "She" could be a he.

    i think mallards and rouens look almost identical as ducklings so it's gonna be hard to tell...

    Thanks for thr responses!!!

    Quote:Wow I hope they turn out to be Silver Campines. I never even thought about them being that. The males are starting to do there fighting dance- so its getting easier to tell male from female

    Quote:I don't know if its true but someone told me a mallard has one line and part of a line around the eyes while a Roen has two full lines?? So I was thinking its a mallard . has anyone else heard that??
