    I got these guys at a feed store today. The black one has yellow on the chest, and they gray one is all gray. Any idea on what breeds?

    Thanks!

    I would guess the brown one is a Khaki Campbell, and the black and yellow one is a Black Swedish, although could be a Cayuga, if it's a Cayuga it won't be much yellow, Black Swedish would have more.

    Those are the same breeds I was thinking. The black one has a yellow splotch on it's chest and the rest of him is black I am leaning towards Cayuga. Which would be great because I wanted one of them.
    Thanks!

    Might be a black runner. Mine had yellow on her chest when she was a little baby

    x2 The duckling is standing up more, too, and has a long neck, so it could be a runner.

    Wow this duckling looks a lot like your runner! That would be good too because I got these two to replace my runner duckling who died :-(

    Aww I'm sorry. I think your duckling is a runner. She/he stands straighter. Here is a picture of the black runner today. (8 weeks)
    Her name is Becky
