OK, so I know the breed or breeding of these ducks but lets play a little game and see if you can guess. :laughing

So, at first I won't say the age, size or breeding of these white ducks, let's see if anyone can guess (I'll tell you eventually). :whist

I also won't say yet if they are purebred or crossbred...

Are the beaks yellow or flesh coloured? It's hard to tell on my phone.

They're lovely & look youngish. I'd say 3 months or so.

OK, so I'm gonna do the reveal early on this, only because I realise I'm actually not sure now what the drake is. :roll: But I do have Pics of the parents.

So they are young, less than 3 months (I think), they have only just got their first full feathers, the 2 young drakes in the group haven't got their curled tail feathers yet.

The mother was this Indian Runner, pure white:

And the father was this (unidentified) white drake:

So here's the thing. I don't actually know what the drake is. I always assumed he was a commercial Pekin cross. But I weighed him today and he is only 2.2 kg. So with that size and weight it would put him looking more like a White Campbell. However I don't think he is a White Campbell (but he could be). I think he is just a white crossbred, very nice and handsome, with smooth sleek feathering (he's a bit rough at the moment because he is moulting).

So a further question for you all: does anyone know what this drake is (because I don't actually know)? :huh?

Cheers. :thumbs:

haha I nearly said cross breed, but I'd only have been guessing!
