Can any one tell me how long it takes before the male starts to get his colors. I have three mallards not sure the age but still pretty young. I would guess between 2 and 3 months old. One of them seems darker and the head seems to be getting green. Do the male start off looking like the females then start to turn to the male colors. I have been looking for a male in my area with no luck so for but the more I look at mine the more it seems to be changing. I always looked a little different and I was hoping I had 2 females and one male. Any body use to seeing mallards grow?
Thanks for any help Steve
