    I couldn't resist buying these cute guys at the bazaar today. I think I will be staying away as I have my own hatching this week. So my question is why kind are these?

    The 2 yellow and black ones look like mallards, the pure yellow one looks kinda like a pekin, and the darker yellow one on the left might be a cross I am not sure



    hope this helped

    They all have a funny hat. I thought the black and yellow were maybe mallard crosses. Here in Ukraine there are no pure breeds to buy at the bazaar.

    yeah, there mixes, some are Crested (the puffy hat on them.)

    i'm thinking for the two where crossed w/ maybea crested mallard,, or white cresed pekin. I just bought pekin and mallard, and your duck look so much like mine, but mine a pure breed, except the yellow ones, my pekins had smaller bills and were more yellow.
