    She looks like my wild type scovies when in fledgling plumage, if she is wild type , she will moult out darker and get the white wing patches..... did she look like a mallard duckling?(pattern)

    Quote:she has a small white patch on her other wing (you just dont see that side on this pic) her sister is the same but with white speckles on her chest and wing. all the other siblings were fully white. it was a strange batch of eggs and im thinking 2 hens must have been laying in one nest to have such different ducklings [​IMG]
