    I adopted a duck...im not sure what kind she is...she is grey, upright, with a fuzz ball on top her head, and a yellow breast. She is almost a year old, and lays her eggs all over the yard...not in one "nest" Anyone know what sort of duck che might be, and why she does this?

    I'm not an expert on ducks...but I'd say it might be a least part runner duck if you say it's upright (by upright, I mean....looks like a bowling pin with legs).

    The top knot on the head is a key thing --but I don't know. YOu might consider posting under OTHER POULTRY...as this is where ducks are typically discussed!

    Neat pic, pretty girls!

    The thing on her head is called a crest. She looks like a Blue Swedish duck, but with a crest so Crested Blue Swedish? Is that possible??

    Your mallard is definately a female from her coloring. She may be trying to establish dominance - or it could just be spring!

    Females in all species will try to mount one another from time to time. I know this isnt poultry related, but we have a female German Sheperd that tries to mount our male black lab right before she goes into heat! (OFF TOPIC-- Anyone looking for a German Shepherd dog? She needs a home, as we were supposed to be 'watching' her for a friend, who has long since decided they no longer want 'the dog'. Anyone interested can email me?) Good luck with your sexually challenged duck! lol
