    Mallards?? Really?? I would of thought Pekin or Runner. We have a full white one that is the biggest of them all and we call him tugboat lol he is probably about 1lb maybe 2lb already they are only about 2- 2 1/2 months old. We also have the 2 beige ones a full black one 2 black/yellow (or at least they were when they were little) and a gray one. I didn't think Mallards came in that variety of colors but that would be way cool if they are!! I know I have at least 2 femals so far cuz they quck and tugboat (the biggest one of them all) is most likely a male since he is not quaking but he is not peeping so I'm hopeing for some ducklings next year!!! Yay!!! [​IMG]

    I think everyone is responding to the one you are holding. That one is a Mallard. I can't see the others so I can't help you there. Nice Mallard though. [​IMG]

    Quote:Well the pic you showed us is definitely mallard. You've probably got a mix of ducks. The big white one I'm guessing is a Pekin. As for the others I have no clue. [​IMG]

    C-A-L Ranch is a "Farmers" store here in Utah County Utah. We got our ducks for a little less than $6 per duckling. I will go out right now and take some better pics of them [​IMG]
