Hello all! We got these ducklings from agway and were told they were Blue Sweedish. Henry definitely is...I think!...but Victoria definitely is NOT! They are about 6 weeks old and she has developed a body full of brown and black feathers a white colar and a crest on the back of her head! She also has shiney green feathers emerging on top of her head and her cheeks. I am assuming she is at least part Mallard. Any guesses?

Yeah....that's what I was thinking....and to be honest...I think henry is a girl! Lol! Is it true that the females quack and males peep until they get older? And how the devil do I post a picture? I uploaded pics but can't figure out how to put them in a post!

You have to post a certain number of messages on the board before you're allowed to show pictures, but I don't remember what the number is. Just stay on here chatting with us for a while and it'll let you post them eventually. I want to say it's after 10 posts.

I had even vent sexed them as all girls (shocking for a first time attempting of vent sexing...lol!) But I swear I did it right! I just am all sad cause I don't want her to fly away come fall if she is a mallard afterall. Also...will henry follow her if she does decide to migrate being that they are different breeds?
