    I guess Rouen. My mallard only had one stripe over his eye but yours look they have two.

    I agree. I think rouens have the double eye stripe and mallards certainly have only 1 (mine did).

    Quote:my rouens produced mainly single eye stripe chicks, out of 11, two had double stripes. You can't always go by the markings. That said, I've never seen a mallard chick with doubles.
