    Hello Fellow Duck-Lovers! Can you give your expert advice if the duck below is a Mandarin Hen or a Wood duck Hen?

    How do you determine the difference between a Mandie Hen and a Woodie Hen? What are the tell-tale signs? Opinions and advice are greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!

    This is the hen in question (She has a darker bill and darker feet compared to the usual Mandie Hen).

    She also has a much thicker white eye line than the Mandie on he left.

    Any thoughts, opinions, suggestions, and advice are much welcome!

    Cheers!
