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.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!
Noisy..kind of I say he stomps around with a quack here and there sometimes more than othersHello and Welcome to BYC ! Baby Howard is a she, your not the first to have trouble with identifying sex. Is she noisy? As for a Rouen or Mallard ? I still have trouble with that one myself ! Nice looking duck!
how old is he? i REALLY think that’s a drakeIm still confused in my opinion his quacks lean more towards the "quack..quack" but is like "whhaa...whaaa" kind of sound lol here are a few more pics If it helps I wish i could upload a video View attachment 2288704 View attachment 2288705 View attachment 2288706 View attachment 2288707 View attachment 2288708
