okay so i don't have a picture-yet, but i was hoping maybe if i described him,no i'm not sure he is a he.

 

okay so he is about the same size as my mallard duckling, he is also 7 weeks old, the thing that's throwing me off is that he has a small white bib on his neck, he is brown,i will post a picture when i get one. thanks!

Swedish, maybe? I'll be able to tell better when you post a pic, but that's the first thing that comes to mind, anyways :)

The first one is when he was about 4 weeks old, and the other two are from last week,
I will get some photos of just him soon
Ok it isn't really a bib but it's kinda wider than a collar.

Hmm ... I'm thinking a mix of some sort. Is the other one a mallard? If so, maybe the mystery duck is a mallard mix? This has got me stumped, too! I've never seen anything like him!

I'm fairly certain the other one is a mallard, we got them from tsc and they don't say which breed you got, but I looked it up and they only sell 5 or 6 breeds, including mallards,Peking, Rouen,Swedish, and khaki Campbells
He is almost the same size as the mallard they are right about the same age, he is slightly bigger

I'm really excited to see what he looks like when he's full grown!wee.gif

Maybe a mallard, then.

Yeah, it'll be cool to see what he looks like when he grows up!
