    Took this sweetie in. I know very minimal about ducks, but 20190616_100845.jpg what breed might this be? I'm assuming it's around 4 weeks.

    It’s a Wilding Mallard. Where did you find it?

    The yellow one was a Pekin.
    The little one that is black and yellow like yours is a Rouen.
    She is Mawmaw!

    We have domestic mallards, so not necessarily a wild mallard baby. It depends on the source of the eggs...

    I don’t have Rouen experience, but I understand that they are several times bigger than mallards. The mallard marked duck in the pictures above looked to be light bodied, not like a heavy bodies meat bird. I certainly could be wrong!

    Definitely mallard.
    Rouen has two full facial stripes while mallards typically have one distinctive stripe :)
