    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!

    Okay, I'm not an expert, but that looks something like a black swedish to me, based on the colors.

    Is it some odd form of call duck?? Call ducks are basically the bantams of the duck world. What a cutie!!

    Looks like a Black Swedish/Mallard Cross. Definately not a pure Black Swedish.
    Comparing how small she is to those Cayugas she's a cross because a true Swedish and Cayuga are medium size ducks and will basically be the same height and etc.
