    I got a duckling at a feed store and it was in an assorted group ... I thought it was blue swedish and it looked like it till now ... it's about 14 weeks old and has molted alot of its feathers and it's head is molting and I'm starting to see a few green feathers coming in ... Could this mean he's a mix or a different breed I'm confused...this is what he looked like be for he started his molt [​IMG]

    That's what I thought too but it's getting a few bright green feathers on his head

    Are they black feathers with a green sheen or literally green feathers.
