    cute but that doesnt look like a rouen
    it only has 1 eye stripe which means mallard

    it would be 2 full eye stripes if she was a rouen.
    and that is a fool proof way to tell .

    sounds 2 me like someone doesnt know what kind of birds they have and are selling people mallards.

    did the egg have a green or blue tint to it?

    mallard eggs will have a green tint. and rouens will have white eggs.

    and no i raise call ducks.
    but i see soo many people getting confused on the 2 so i always try to help them

    if he doesnt have 2 full eye stripes its a mallard. =)
