We've enjoyed all the great comments! Keep 'em coming!

The winner of yesterday’s contest is Laura, who captioned the photo of our ducks, “Quack, quack, quack! Every day is just ducky at the Creation Museum!” Congratulations, Laura.

Ducks at the Creation Museum


Roens, which are a domestic variety of Mallards, get about three times the sizes of wild mallards.

Indian Runner ducks have a very upright stance. They do not waddle like most ducks but walk more like penguins. Runners come in several colors and are bred mostly for egg production—one duck lays about 365 a eggs a year.

Magpies are mottled, usually white and black, but other colors do exist. The magpie may be related to the running duck, but it is considered much rarer. Some people have even placed it on the “endangered breeds” list. Magpies lay 220-300 eggs a year.

Cayuga ducks are an ornamental and meat bird named for the region of New York where the breed first became popular. This breed is considered threatened by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy. Cayuga ducklings keep their same color through adulthood. They sport solid black from bill to webbed feet, and when the sun hits them just right, they take on an emerald green shine like a Japanese beetle.
