    I am trying to fill out my game bird breeders licence ad cant fid the latin names for Indian Runner, Khak Campbells, Cayaugas, and Rouens I know they are all related to mallards in some way which is Anas Platyrhynchos but can not find it anywhere and have done several searches. If any one has the info I would really appreciate it [​IMG]

    Cayuga, Rouen, and Khaki Campbell are all breeds of Anas platyrhyncos, not separate subspecies. So, they are all still A. platyrhyncos I believe.

    Yes, all the ducks you listed are varieties of Anas platyrhynchos. There may be a variety name tacked to the end of each, but I don't think that will really matter.

    I don't think domestic duck breeds are considered game birds.

    well they just mentioned ducks on the form so I figured I might as well I originally got the paperwork for the quail but when I saw the word duck I figured why not add them since I have runners and am hatching a few other breeds as well.
