    I found this little guy at the feed store all alone. I couldn't just leave him there. He was last of a 'duckling assortment'. Any help is appreciated.

    I may be wrong, but that looks like a goose to me.

    If not a goose it is probably a pekin or buff.

    Looks like a Muscovy but I'm leaning more towards a gosling.

    It's not a gosling, but does like like a buff.

    Thanks for the information. I think he looks like a buff, too. But what about the green feet?Can buffs have green feet?
