We have a pure mallard female who landed at our farm and decided to stay, a male Pekin, and two female Pekins (easy to identify). We also had a Drake that was the offspring of the Mallard female and one of the Pekin males who is a beautiful gray color.recently, we were given the 3 ducks in the attached photo by a family who couldn't take care of them and knew our ducks love our Creek and are taken care of.
I know thexactly lighter color duck is easily identified as a mallard female but she is much larger than our other wild one. The other two ducks have the undertones of the Mallard female coloring but are also black with an olive bill.
I am trying to sex these two black ducks and don't have any idea what breed the Mallard Cross is with. I do know that none of them have the curly tail feather that is indicative of a male.
Any help with the ID and type would be appreciated (or any suggestions). We are working hard so that no one gets picked on and wanted to make sure we don't have any males in this last batch.
