    Maybe his aunt was a Cayuga, but that drake surely is not. He bears the most resemblance to a Campell duck although he is certainly not pure bred.

    Nope, not Cayuga.

    Maybe he is a Campbell, but he could also be some kind of hybrid.

    Depends on the strain, I guess. I've seen pictures with Campbells lighter than your duck and with ducks of about the same colour as your drake.

    Do Campbell's get the green heads?

    The standart description says that the drake's head should dark brown with a dull green gleam.

    Your bird may have a too brightly coloured head. Also, the bill is supposed to be green. The bill of your drake seems to appear a little too yellow. But it's hard to tell without a close-up picture.
