what breeding code for ducks/geese with ducklings

the ducklings are not fledged yet and not on a nest just walking or swimming with a parent(s) what is the correct breeding code to use?
Thanks

The verb fledge can be used several different ways. It does not necessarily mean they have feathers big enough to fly. It can also mean the act of acquiring feathers. Thus most any bird who has left the nest can be said to be fledged. So fledged would be the correct breeding code.

Yes, recently fledged young.
