    Ok... i got some duckies from TSC 3 of them are the same which I was told were mallards. However after reading, and understanding that most of the folks at TSC have never seen a Live duck before their first shipment, I understand that mallards have only ONE line across their eye and non under, where as rouen's have One line across their eye, and one under.. Is this correct?

    I noticed the size difference between my Campbell Khaki and my "mallards"

    Just FYI I don't really care what breed they are, they are already spoiled rotton thanks to my DW, I just want to know what breed they are.

    Rouens *usually* have one eye stripe. Mallards *usually* have two. My Mallards, as ducklings, had one stripe above the eye and a dot underneath.

    Those look Rouen to me. They can get very big, but they take their time getting there. I think they take about 7 months to fully mature rather than the 5 months that mallards do.
