    I can't really see his coloring, but mallards are much smaller.

    Looks more like a khaki campbell or maybe a buff to me. It is too big to be a mallard. I would go with khaki campbell more, my rouens (same colors as mallard) have a more reddish coloring on their breasts. Plus they have a lot of grey on them also.

    He looks exactly like a Male Khaki Campbell. He's much too large to be a mallard. You should look up Wifezilla (Or maybe she'll see this), her duck looks alot like yours.

    They are gorgeous!

    I love the rich browns of the Khaki Campbells.
