    My friend gave these to me, and she has had ducks for about 20 years now. She started with some from the local feed store, and doesn't know what breeds she had. I am thinking that they might be a Rouen X Campbell mix. What is your Guess?

    Mix of maybe even Khaki and mallard, head looks really green to be true khaki and wings look to have a touch of gray. the hen looks really dark on my screen, so i'm stumped there. Might be true khaki but there glare from the sun in the pic makes the pic on my screen look funky. How many drakes do you have? looks like you need some more hens.

    The one in the back was crippled, and didn't make it. I have three drakes to one hen. Two of the drakes have green heads, and one is a dark brown. I was thinking of keeping the best pair and ordering a few Swedish hens to add to the mix. Any thoughts on that?
    BTW what is the Ideal ratio of Drakes to Hens?
