    Maybe a Rouen/Saxony or Appleyard mix?

    Thanks I just can't get over how big it is it makes my other ducks look small so was wondering what it could be.

    Almost looks like it could be a saxony/welch harlequin mix. Saxony's are big ducks.

    She is beautiful and her eggs are massive I can't understand why people would just throw them out like rubbish. It makes me so mad but on a positive note she has a happy forever home now and we all love her.
