    IMG_1398.JPG IMG_1398.JPG IMG_1398.JPG IMG_1399.JPG I am new to the group and I have been raising chickens for a year and I am brand new to raising ducks. Someone had two ducklings to give away and my husband brought them home a little over a month ago. I am wanting to know what kind they are. Any ideas?

    If they are what I think they are the are Bantam ducks so they will be smaller then normal ducks and a little bigger then call ducks. The pics I posted still have some fuzz so I'll try to get new ones.

    You should be able to tell by voice by now. The girls are very loud boys are quieter. If you look it up online you can find examples of both.
