    Ok, I know about older females getting male 'looks' (I once had a female mandarin duck that got the typical male wings at an older age), but in the advertisment, it says the ringteal a 2011 male ...

    Secundo,
    It sure looks like a female from the photo you posted. A drake with a white head would be interesting to see.

    Last year I bye 1 pair of Silver Wood Ducks from some breeder near Belgrade!I found him on some Croatian birds forum.That breeder have all mutations of wood ducks,including platinum.I saw that with my own eyes!
    I am in contact with him and I will try to tell him to put some pictures on this forum.

    What are these guys? I saw one at the San Diego Zoo in April and I've been trying to figure out what they are, but I can't find any info at all.

    The males in the pictures and the birds in the first picture are an apricot mutation, i don't think you are going to find them in the US, i don't even find any females in Europe; the normal colour is Black instead of browny orange, they are really nice birds to have,

    good luck in your search, you will have a lot of fun with them,

    This second image is of an Australian Native Magpie Goose. I currently have one that i'm raising that was washed up in recent flooding. He is still very young, and hangs around with 2 of my young muscovies.
