What our ducks will look like...

Since our babies will be arriving on the 13th of October, I (MamaDuck) thought I would share what they are going to look like.  We will be getting a pair of male and female for 3 different breeds.  Pekin, Cayuga, and Welsh Harlequins.
This is the baby cayugaThis is a full grown cayuga
(Interesting tidbit about cayugas, as they age thier feathers begin to go white, like people go the time they are 8 years old they are completely gray/white)
This is a baby Welsh Harlequin

These are full grown Welsh Harlequins
              (Female on left, male on right)  (Welsh Harlequins are fantasic layers, and the females actually have very stong mothering instincts, so we will see how she reacts when we start taking her eggs)

These are baby Pekins
(This was Alex and Bianca, when they were only a couple days old)

These are full grown Pekins
(These are also Alex and Bianca at about 1 1/2 years old)
(Pekins-like alot of ducks-are very sociable and affectionate, not in the sit in your lap kind of way, but they love for you to come and sit on the ground next to them and just talk or listen to them talk, they just love attention. (:  )

 Just thought some people would want to know what they are going to look like.  We will definitely be posting lots of pictures of OUR new babies when they actually arrive. (9 days!!!)
I got the first 4 images from  The last 2 are our own.
