Hiya, everybody! I joined today, hoping you lovely people might be able to help me. I currently don't own any chickens or other birds, though I do hope to someday, because birds are extremely awesome! I do however crochet, and I'm currently working on creating a design for a male mallard duck. (My goal is to design a whole menagerie of birds including chickens. So while I specifically need help with mallards right now please PLEASE feel free to share measurements of other birds too). What I need help with is getting a better idea of size. I want my design to be pretty realistic, but the only easy information I'm getting is that "mallard ducks get to be about 26 inches and around 3 pounds." What I am hoping, is that those of you who own mallard ducks might be able to share with me average measurements and helpful resources like: • Length and Width of Head, Neck, Body, and Feet (precise is amazing but I'll also take guesses , because yours will be better than mine.) • if taken from a specific duck, sharing gender and age and if you consider it larger or smaller than average. • any websites, books etc. that might help. • Any other information you think could help. Thanks so much for whatever help you're able to give.
