So, when we got our baby ducks it was obviously a grab bag. We knew the white ones were Pekin, but not sure about the rest because all the eggs were supposed to be Pekin, but were obviously not. Well, after a quick google search we have confirmed that "Duck" is a female Mallard. Of all things, a pet Mallard?!? I plan to start calling her Mrs. Mallard, but Bry doesn't believe in re-naming.
"Moses" is a Cayuga, but we're still not sure of his and the Pekins' gender. It appears the drake feathers that would signify a male, may take up to four months to show.
In other duck news, they are starting to try and fly. So far Moses has a personal best of about 20 feet :)
