    Those legs make me think drake now a front view. looks like they are set pretty far apart too. ducks legs are close together where they almost look like they are going to step on their own feet when walking, and someone on here described the body shape of a female as looking like an American football in size.

    Bristow, ok

    I saw that tip too and sure enough my blue pied girls are football shaped, one is a little more like a nerf football.

    I read elsewhere about the males raising their crest. Can females do this to when being defensive?

    is that an angel wing? Duckie is 7 weeks old. Should I wrap it now?

    trying to get good pics for sex guesses lol not very cooperative... definitely getting lots of wing feathers, and lets them droop a lot.
