    Aren't all Mallards flyers unless you clip their wings?

    No some people sell roen mallards and they cant fly and my experience is they are infertile with flying mallards! I want true mallard ducklings! Was burned twice in the past!

    I care if they fly because i want them to be able to elude predators on our property! Hawks, raccoons, mink, foxes, owls, etc!

    Flying isn't going to mean they escape predators.

    My mallard flew out of the pen the pond and would hang out for a bit and then fly back into the pen with the other ducks.
    They were penned because we had a fox picking off my birds.

    She was also picked off by the fox.

    well its illegal to call a mixed breed a mallard which is a pure bred type of duck so theres something you can look into

    well u could report them and file a report saying that they're selling false product.

    thats why u should always ask for bloodline and why i give my buyers a bloodline of their duckling that i have given them ( especially for my black mallards) which are 100% mallard giving the bloodline and ancestory of the bird ensures that they are purebred along with genetic tests

    all of my breeding and show ducks get genetic testing done proving that they are 100% mallard
