Unfortunately my first duck that had a clutch of 14 disappeared with her babies right after they were hatched. I don’t want to know what happened to them :hitAnyways, I have 18 ducklings now from 2 hens. One of the mothers ended up deserting the babies and the other took over. The larger ones are a week older than the littler ones.

    Do you have an idea of what colours they’ll end up being?

    Most of the dark ones look like they will be black, though the one in the upper right corner looks like it might be blue (gray). Need another picture of that one. The yellow ones will be the color of their tail feathers.

    Mum of the second clutch is one of the three white/tan ones on the right. Dad could be the black or silver drake on the left.

    Hen on the left is the mum of the first clutch and the drake on the right could be daddy of some??

    That’s the thing, I don’t know who the daddy is! Here are some pictures of them though.

    I have a terrible time telling colors by pictures. I agree to check those tiny tail feathers coming to see what color they are.
