    Bought a mix of different duck eggs to hatch and this is my first little baby out. Just wondering what breed he/she is. Any ideas???

    Were the eggs a selection of different eggs from pure lines or where they from a flock of mixed ducks? The duckling has some of the traditional markings of a Mallard (or Rouen) but there is definitely something else in there.

    Might be Khakis or Blue Swedish . . . if you can get more photo's maybe that would help. And maybe I just want to see more duckling photos!

    @amiga. These are my first ducks, i never dreamed they would be so mischievous. Cutest little thieves I've ever seen. They constantly steal things from me.
