    I'm beginning to think Miss Kay isn't really a "miss" after all... She's around 12 weeks old. Always had a different, softer sound to her compared to my two female pekins. She's my only mallard.

    Miss Kay kinda looks like a Mr. Kay, especially around the beak it looks like its head is turning green

    Thanks everyone! Never owned a mallard before, so we just assumed he was a she until I started to notice the green coming in.
