2 week old duck with neck ring already?!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 


Hi! My pair of runners is 2 weeks old and one of them appears to already have a ring around its neck. Nothing about sexing ducks has mentioned an early ring around the neck for a drake. Could this just be a fluke or do I have an early bloomer?

Also, I know it kind of just looks like a spot here, ha! Baby won't sit still. But it sort of looks like a chevron they points down and goes around the front of the neck. Thoughts?

:welcome  Some ducks, both hen and drake, will show a 'feather pattern' neck ring.  It is not necessarily a sign of gender.
