I live in Pakistan and a few months ago i purchased two ducklings from a bird shop that's at a walking distance from my house they grew up to be quite odd ducks. I mean we could,nt tell the male or female apart, freaked out i browsed the net for a duck breed fitting that description. turned out they resembled mottled dicks except for the fact that they have white bellies. is their any logical explanation?

Can you post a picture of them? It's possible they are mixed breed ducks and that's why they don't seem to fit the description of any specific breed. They sounds beautiful, though!
You should be able to tell their sex by their voices if they are a few months old. Females are more noisy and "quack", while the males are quieter and have a raspy, whisper-like voice.
yesterday the duck we thought was male suddenly just collapsed his legs were stretched all the way back and he couldn't straighten them out. we thought it was dying, so in a hurry we laid him down, straightened his legs making him do some form of leg exercise and rubbed its back.And gave it a mixture of turmeric and oil he wasn't drinking it but we used a syringe to give him the mix and we also used the syringe to force water down his throat and separated him from his partner by placing him in a box filled with hay. after that we all had a church meeting to attend, when we came back we were shocked to find him alive and well with an egg right under him , which he later ate on his own. strange fact about the egg was that it had a very soft shell. after that we gave him human calcium supplements also by the syringe........well now he seems to be doing fine he is walking, but he's still weak and he still needs to be kept away from his bright and energetic partner.
