This is my duck Shadow. We bought her and her sister Spunky at Tractor Supply this summer. (Unfortunately Spunky was taken by a hawk) We didn’t know what breed they were when we got them. At first we thought they were a mix breed of Pekin and Khaki. We are new to owning ducks, and hadn’t done much research. Then after research we were certain they were Rouens. Now that she is about 16 weeks, we aren’t so sure. She is soooo tiny! Our Welsh Harlequin ducklings (at 8 weeks) are larger than her. And she flys all the time and can get very high in the sky. Can anyone tell me what they think she is? I just want know!

She looks like a domesticated mallard. They tend to be darker than the wild strains.
