    [​IMG] Sounds gorgeous! Make sure to post pictures of him [​IMG]. Where was he found? I've heard rumors of Albino Mallards but have never seen a confirmed case yet.

    Thats why I asked. If they are blue I think that it can't be an albino.

    The pink/red eyes only is actually a common misconception. Many albino animals and people can have blue eyes.
