Snowy mallards are pretty rare; they are more likely welsh harlequins.

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 :(

Agreed they already look to big to be a Snowy mallard.

A breeder of mallards(grey and melanistic), Call ducks (2015 FINALLY!!!), (I also have a seabright and a bantam cochin)

My first guess was harlequin, but I've never seen a harlequin with a dark head like that.

Younger welsh harlequins have darker heads and when they get older they become more white with those pretty little black specs
