    Probably a magpie. Is this your first and only duck so far?

    He could be an Ancona, but it depends on where you got him from. Also, see the thread where I ask about ducklings with multi-colored feet. I found out there are a number of breeds with "party shoes," as Wildpeas calls them.

    Hope we hear from you regularly!

    How's everyone doing? Have you read the stickies, and jdywntr's advice on ducklings yet?

    The stickies are in a link in the blue banner at the top of the duck forum. Congrats! That is a little cutie with some interesting markings. It could be magpie, ancona, or a really weirdly marked black swedish. Regarless, it is cute.

    Thanks! Im leaning towards magpie but im still not sure, I got him at Atwoods cause he looked so different from the others. I dont know if they would sell magpies though. I have some black swedish ducklings and they dont have as much yellow on them.

    I would wait untill he grows up and then do some reaserch to find out what breed he is.
