    Hi, my little brother wants a duckling for his b-day (march 24). And he loves mallards ever since he was like 2. I was wondering what is a better pet for him Mallard or Rouen (also if someone post the proper pronunciation for Rouen I say it like Ruin) also what is the mallard coloring called?

    I also say it like "Row-In", but I'm not sure myself how to pronounce it right. We have a Rouen pair and they are super friendly. Much bigger than mallards. Also keep in mind that the mallards might fly away at some time.

    Welsh Harlequin - Sorta Mallard like, won't fly away, usually a very "people friendly" duck. Make sure to get a pair though. Ducks are not happy without other ducks.
