i mean the color coming in near his beak, and his grey chest. hens do not get that. i did have a girl with a greenish head when she was young, but that looked different from this.

oh btw do you have rouens or mallards? the drake in your profile pic is super cute!
Thank you we have both. We started our little flock this spring with two wild Mallard hens from a private breeder. Then four weeks into it we added a batch of ten more, Rouen/Pekin/Mallard mix. They are turning into a very colorful bunch of ducks.

Big D in my avatar is 17 weeks old and starting to get if green head feathers. Here is a pic of his father. :)
