Which Breeds are these ducks?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi,

i dont know if this is right forum.

Below are the pics of aforementioned ducks.

 

both are female and laying

brown one is even started sitting on eggs a couple days ago.

 

as per online search, brown one is mallard (dometicated ones, here in lahore pakistan adults and ducklings are sold at pet shops)

white one is, well not so sure, pekin.

i also came to know that pekins are heavier and larger than mallards.

but mine white duck is even smaller than mallard.

another search turned up a new term "white mallards"

if white one is white mallard then should it not be same size as regular mallards ?

 

i am so confused and frustated about not getting right information.

Please bear with me if i am not making any sense and guide me.

Thanx in advance

Where did you get them?

 

How much do they weight? If your brown one is more then 2-2.5 lbs than she is likely a Rouen and not a Mallard. Rouens are about 5-7.5 lbs. If the white one is about that too she could still be a Pekin. They have a pretty large weight range.If she is 4.5-5.5 she might be a White Layer.

 

If they are both 2-2.5 lbs then they are likely both Mallards, one wild type and one white.

 

Either way, they are both cute.

i have not weighed them.

they get scared and run away and like to keep their distance.

brown one is sitting on eggs so i dont wanna scare her off her nest but white one and drake can be weighed.
