we have a couple of ducks and don't know what duck is a male or female. we know one is a female and have at least 2 males. they are mallard ducks. none of them have the dark green heads but one does have a little green.

hello I have mallards and the way I tell them apart visualy is by looking at the bill if the bill is olive green with some to no black spots its male , if its orange with some black around the nose. it is a female. another way is vent sexing they have some videos on youtube by mertzer farms on how to sex ducklings and geese its the same for when they are older.
