    does anyone know why the one is more yellow? He's older now and looks almost the same as the others but no stripe on the eye. My rir's in the pic are almost fully feathered now too but need to update photos

    Cool, I have 6 mallard eggs in the bator right now with 1 week to go. Sorry can't answer your question.

    NP...I hope your eggs hatch. [​IMG] I bought mine at TSC about 7 weeks ago so they're a lot bigger now!

    I thought maybe it was a different color variation of mallard....that's what I meant.It was sold in with about 100 other mallards in a bin at TSC. And now,as I said it has the same feathering as the other two,but no stripe.

    Yeah,I saw that too. I'm guessing that's what he is called as well. Thanks for looking it up [​IMG]
