    From my very very VERY limited experience with ducks, that looks male. As for breed, I have such a vague idea I won't even say. But someone very knowledgeable should be along soon to tell us both. :) Of course, I am not sure it's male, at all. Does it quack or not? Some drakes have a curly feather on top of the base of the tail/rump area.

    Just a suggestion: if you know the age, add that info, because it's often very relevant and too many people forget to add it, and everyone who answers often asks for it.

    Best wishes.

  3. This one is clearly a drake.

    The angle of the picture and the fact that the bird is not completely in the picture make it a little difficult to determine the breed.
    The colours fit to a saxony drake, but he appears too slim for this breed. The size and posture remind me of a Welsh Harlequin, but from this angle he might as well be a runner.

    I tend to say that he is some kind of cross. A pretty one by the way [​IMG]

    If I sent you more pictures, and the age of the duck would you mind helping me possibly determine the breed? I am shocked because I thought "he" was female. Thanks for all the help
     
  6. Sure, some more pictures with the whole duck on the picture, preferably from a flat angle would be good [​IMG]

    Looks male to me too as for the breed, its hard to say. Could you get a picture that shows the whole side and colorings? That would probably help to determine it better. :D From the picture you have he almost looks likes one of my rouens but the colorings are a little different and he almost looks too small. :cool:
