What kind of duckling do these two look like? They were bought from Tractor Supply.

    EDIT: you should never let your ducklings stand on a slick surface such as that, line it with paper towels (don't use newspapers) or shavings.

    The first duckling is definitely a Khaki Campbell. The second duckling looks like it could be a Blue Swedish though.

    Thanks. That is exactly what I thought. I hope the second one isn't a Muscovy. I want a BS.

    First one is a welsh harlequin- Definitely NOT a khaki campbell. Those are a light brown all over as ducklings. This one clearly isn't

    The other is a heavily marked blue swedish

    You are right!!! I am so excited because I really wanted Welsh Harlequins and I love Blue Sweden's too. Khaki ducklings are much darker. Thanks
