stumped on this duck breed...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi all ...

 

I volunteer at a wildlife rehab center on the weekends and we unfortunately get a lot of calls on domestic ducks dumped into the wild .. a lot of times after being given as Easter gifts and then the families realize how much work keeping ducks are.. 

 

I have adopted quite a few of them .. Khaki Campbells, Muscovy, Pekin .. you name it.. 

 

I brought home this duck in the front last year:

 

 

I assumed she was probably some mutt .. she has some khaki campbell characteristics .. but a stripe on her face and bright orange feet.. more color variation in wings too..

 

Does anyone know what she is?

 

Also - I keep calling her a "she" but I recently caught her mounting our muscovy girl in the pond .. I've never seen two females mount each other.. so maybe "she" is in fact a "he"?? Anyone have any ideas???

I'm not sure on the breed but females will definitely mount each other.

Yeah, girls do sometimes mount on girls.

I had a girl who mounted. I'm not sure what she is.

Looks like a Khaki Mallard mix to me.

That's what I thought too .. she was found wandering outside a neighborhood begging for food and couldn't fly away with her other duck friends when winter came. I'm wondering if someone dumped a khaki campbell that mated with a mallard
