    When I got them on Friday I never thought to ask what breed they were. A quick internet search made me think they are either Indian Runners, Pekins, or Bluffs. Any ideas?

    Thanks! They're beautiful! When will they start turning white?
    My boys named them "Honey" and "Mustard" after their favorite salad dressing. LOL I guess those names won't apply much longer. [​IMG]

    They are pekins. I have one that is 6 weeks old and turning white. Fun to watch their changes!! Enjoy! Pics on my website :)

    If they were buffs, there would be dark smudging around the eyes. This is a khaki/buff mix and you can still see the eye smudging...

    Where did you get them from?

    They look like Pekins.

    One thing we found out is that Holderreads in OR doesnt have Pekins, but they ship a white duckling similar to a pekin. It is a white appleyrad. A SA gone whtie!! We love them and keep/breed them now!
