What kind of ducks do I have?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So, I bought a pair of ducks about 5 months ago at  a feed store. But I really don't know what kind I have or if they males or females. When I bought them the woman showed me a picture on a chart of what they would turn out look like full grown, but as the months went by they turned out to be nothing like the kind she had showed me.... Would anyone be able to tell me what I have?  :idunno

Hmm, they look very similar to my Welsh Harlequins (see below), except they have a lot more white, and their body shape and size looks more like a call duck or mallard.

Momma to 8 ducks - Rocky, Dexter (male mallards);  Ruby Sue (female mallard); Tony (male buff); Roxy (female fawn and white runner); Dorothy, Blanche, and Rose (female Welsh Harlequins); and 2 kitties, Maggie and Fuffy-cat.

RIP Bullwinkle and Turkey-duck :(

Oh, and as for gender, this link should help you differentiate by quack: http://www.majesticwaterfowl.org/artquacks.htm
