I renamed this thread as I have some questions. Please see updates post #15 Someone contacted me asking if I can take a duckling that they bought and can no longer care for. She got it at the fleamarket and does not know the breed. I am assuming probably muscovy (since down here you can go out and catch them) but wanted some opinions. Here are pics I have gotten from her and they are not great. I don't think the line on the face goes in front of the eye, only behind but hard to tell because of flash. So, I'm thinking not a mallard. I'm hoping the cage was just not cleaned out yet and that is not what it is living in. Any ideas on breed?
