    Does the Green sheen on a rouen duck always indicate a drake?I have four rouens(Five Weeks) two of them have a lot of green on there heads the others just have a little sheen.I will post Pictures tomorrow morning.

    Pretty...:)....I never heard of a Crested Rouen...That one has me thinking Drake...;)....I am not sure...Until they actually go through a juvenile molt and get adult feathers it is hard to tell....I'd they Quack....Hen...Sound raspy and whistle its a Drake....Lots can have the green sheen and be Hens...:)....I really don't know ..:)


    Very nice Ducks...:)
