    As she aged her feathers turned darker (she lost most of her spots) and her black bill turned orangish. Also I'm not quite sure if she is a she. She is VERY vocal. She makes noise to just about everything (new food, when a car pulls up, when we walk outside, when a plane flies by, when she bathes, when she eats, when she chases the dogs, literally everything). But she has curly tail feathers and takes a male roll when attempting to mate with our male mallard (at least that's what I'm assuming "she" is doing).

    If there is a curl tail feather its a boy. Does it make a honk/quack or is it raspy? I can't tell from the pics how he/she stands but it almost looks like a blue runner

    I would also say she is a he and most likely a cross between a Khaki and a Blue Swede
