    I recently rescued a baby duckling from a pond. I'm curious as to what kind he is. His bill is orange and blackish and his legs are also orange and blackish.[​IMG]

    [​IMG] I would guess that it may very well be a Muscovy.

    Hello there, and welcome to Backyard Chickens! I don't own ducks, nor am I very experienced with them, so I'll leave that to someone else, just wanted to say :welcome!! And in case you were wondering, the ducks in my avatar were a joke towards a friend, I will change it soon. LOL I hope you enjoy BYC!

    I rescued him because someone dropped thirteen ducklings with their parent ducks off at my local pond. All of the ducklings sadly dissapeared but this little guy.

    That is so sad. Glad you were able to save this one. How is he/she doing?
