We have a ton of mallards in the neighborhood, so I just assumed the ones that are black and white and just plain white are some kind of mallard, but....I know nothing! A few days old ( I know! She is THAT cute): This is her today at four weeks: See how much smaller she is than my Cayugas, and there is only probably three days difference in age? My mallards in my pond are really tiny, too! We call her/him Dot because of the dot on her head. She now has freckles on her chest. SOOOOO cute!
