    hey there,
    I have recently aquired a few new ducks (I currently gave Pekins) anyway, I was told this new larger one is a female Rouen but all the pics of femake Rouens i see do not have green heads so im confused.
    Also, 2 young ducklings that I believe are Rouen but no clue how to sex them. Any info is appreciated!

    If that last picture is of the duck you're trying to identify, it's a male. Very well could be a male rouen, but it's not a female for sure.

    And the 2 little ones...any thoughts on those? Breed & sex??

    Hello and welcome to BYC!!!
    Very cute ducklings. Sorry I can't be of much assistance with them. I just got my own first two ducklings last week.
