What kind of duck?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
This poor guy/gal wandered onto our property starving and dehydrated. He/she has been fed and is enjoying their new pool.

Any idea what breed and if it's male or female? I know nothing of ducks, just chickens.

Thanks!

Looks exactly like one of my Indian Runner Ducks, does she stand upright?

A standing picture would help, looking for body size, type, and stance.

If she doesn't look like a bowling pin when she stands up, she's a Khaki Campbell. Both breeds are very good layers. 

 

Here's a picture from Metzer, with the hen on the left on drake on the right. You might have an immature drake, if it gets a dark head and a curly feather on its tail. It's probably  a girl, however, and should lay like a Leghorn for you soon.

By your user name... island...  where are you?   Might be a local breed of duck?

 

It looks like an adult female to me, due to frayed flight feathers(as in she's at least a year old, feathers grown last year not this year).

I'm on the Big Island of Hawaii. Most likely a local breed.

You might want to post her (I think it's a hen) at the "Duck thread," They probably would be best at knowing her breed.
