    Hello Everybody thanks for reading this. I have been given a few ducks from a friend who grew tired of them. I have never had ducks before and I really enjoy them. I'm wanting to get a few more next year but I dont know what kind I have. If you can identify the breed and maybe even the sex I would appreciate it. Thanks again for helping out.

    I believe these first 2 are the same breed. And then I have this completely brown duck.

    I noticed one of them has a green bill which means male with Mallards, but I don't know about other ducks. Do you notice a difference in their quack? Whispery and quite means drake and loud means girl!

    I'd say both are female.

    The first pics do look like Welsh Harlequin females. Not sure of the brown one.

    Also, it would be a lot easier to see the ducks if they were on the ground. They look very sweet.

    Ok I will take some picks of them on the ground. What is the difference between Welch HArlequin and Appleyard?
    Thanks Again
