Still identifying this duck

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I posted about my duckling who might be a buff and now she's growing her feathers out. She still looks like a buff but she is growing a white collar too and I haven't seen that on a buff.

Still looks like a buff to me. Mine had a lot of white feathers at first, so maybe she still needs to molt again to turn completely buff? (just to clarify, that's a fawn and white runner in the back of that pic)
Or maybe it's just a random patch of odd feathers... my Ruby has a little white spot on the back of her neck (she's a mallard) and Tony the buff has a little chestnut-colored patch on his neck/shoulder area.

Momma to 8 ducks - Rocky, Dexter (male mallards);  Ruby Sue (female mallard); Tony (male buff); Roxy (female fawn and white runner); Dorothy, Blanche, and Rose (female Welsh Harlequins); and 2 kitties, Maggie and Fuffy-cat.

RIP Bullwinkle and Turkey-duck :(

Looks buff to me. Mine has whitish wing feathers, but she lightens and darkens depending on her molt.
So this is where my John Hancock goes? Oh wait, John Hancock? Pffft...it's Herbie Hancock ;]
