Possible albino duckling!!! - Page 2

Has anyone ever seen true albino mallard-derivative ducks, and do you have photos of them? 

 

I've seen albino wood-ducks, but nothing else yet.

I don't think he is an albino.

 

He has a orange bill... an albino would have a very light pink bill and legs.

No, he wasn't albino. False alarm....sorry. A very, very light buff color. Pretty duck, but not what I'd hoped.

Maybe next time.... I don't think I ever saw an albino duck... or chicken... weird as there are so many of them.

 

I have albino budgies, hamsters, fish and turtle.  I would love an albino chicken or duck.

As wood ducks do come in white and many other colors albino is not a true thing that happens to them, wood ducks natural color mutation is actually apricot meaning it can occur naturally in the wild, albino isn't really a thing in some species i mean like don't quote me on that i'm not sure, as far as i know albino happens in mainly mammals, even crocodiles aren't truly albino but have a white, cream color mutation. But like Mallards natural color mutation is blonde, a light cream color and some people have reported a natural black mallard mutation. So i dont know if they are albino just what u probably saw with the wood ducks is just a white /silver one
