    Hi so I got my ducks out of an assorted bin at tractor supply and the employee who helped us said they were white ducks, now that they are older I wanted to confirm (or not) their breed!

    Well, they are white! LOL...the only white ones I know are Peking, and they dont have those adorable spots! Good luck! (I have Muskovys--they are easy!)

    Pekings don't have black spots though. And at that size, they should have the red mask by now if they were muscovies. French white muscovies do have the black spots on their heads though.

    You're right. I looked again. And a little googling showed that it is usually not very prominent in French White Mucovies. I'd definitely say that's what they are!
