    It is raining today and my ducks look so pretty out with the overcast sky...decided to take a few pics of them and once I looked at the ones I took, I saw this one that shows all my cute little spotted bums and remembered someone commented on that today or yesterday.....decided to share my pics.

    I thought I only had ONE chocolate, and I think I have found out it is actually called a "penciled", but...not sure. That is the one that is colored like a female mallard.

    In the second picture, look at the one right in front of the mallard looking one, he looks like he MAY be a chocolate. Maybe?? And then my little runt baby at the very back of the same second picture.

    I am SO mad because the one that died was definitely a chocolate. Plus, he was a sweetheart! Ugh!

    As babies, look at their coloring...the little runt baby is all the way on the right, he looked chocolate to me when they first came:

    I thought I had four chocolates when they first came.


    OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHh.......I forgot how DANG cute they were!

    Quote:I can't believe they are the same ducks, but they were precious as ducklings and are beautiful as teenagers. My Muscovy duckling had alot of brown on him as a duckling but it has all gone away. I guess that just happens. you have beautiful ducks.
