    hey guys i just rescued this guy from the local pond he had a broken beak and he was losing weight. (i work for 2 rehab companies and i was sent out on this call) the people said hes been like this for months and has lost weight like crazy. any idea what he could be a mix of? mallard and..... rouen? or muscovey? lol i have no idea. all ideas are welcome [​IMG] btw when i got him home today i fed him his pellets in the bottom of the water dish and he ate 4 dishes. poor little guy [​IMG] but hes safe now!

    Also do you guys think he could injure my girls with a broken break when mating and things like that?

    well, since his beak is broken, it probably is not as strong as a normal beak, and since the drakes hold on to the female with the beak, I don't think it would be a big problem.
    nice of you to rescue him!!!
