    You can see in the last pic by six to seven weeks old you can start to tell the sex. The one on the far right is starting to get the white stripe running up the side of his head just behind the eye. The hens will have no stripe and start getting a white ring around the eye.

    The pic was taken under a pine tree. The ducks in the background are a pair of Blonde phase American Widgeon, they are starting to moult so they look kind of ruff.

    Yes you do need permits for color mutations. The mutations do happen even with wild birds I can't recall which book but I have seen the blonde widgeon in a book and the picture was of a group of wild widgeons with one blonde in the group. When this happens with captive birds they are bred back to birds that carry the gene and when bred together they through the mutated color.
