The Muscovy Ducks

Notice some yellow feet and some black. My Peterson Field Guide shows both. Yellow is the domestic variation, the black the ancestral variation. This is part of how I decided. So if I am wrong, please correct me on these ducks. And the 2nd and 3rd photographs could possibly be a different type. Please comment with any corrections.

Nice photos of all those ducks. I know very little about ducks so I can't correct or confirm what you say. ;-)

Have you ever heard the saying, "So ugly they are cute" ? That's most ducks to me.
Great pics!

By the way, My MRI.....well, couldn't do it the first time, cancelled the second time and tomorrow at 7:15 in the a.m. with the help of some Xanax maybe. Please pray for me. I have a high tolerance for pain, those little tube things on a conveyer belt......not sure.
