I am actually about to go choose a mate for my drake, and I am arming myself with allll the knowledge I can! I have a picture from the listing, and we must drive 2 hours to get to the flock they are selling. I can't seem to seperate the pic from the creigslist link, but here is that. https://images.craigslist.org/00k0k_hUY6ztoT3uv_1200x900.jpg
I think its a flock of 16 by now. Hmmm, right? They all have orange feet, but not much neck line...
Hmmm. The 5 in the picture all have tan/light beaks. They're all facing the camera, so I can't really see a swoop on the top of bills, but one duck has a straight head-to-bean line, so I'm guessing male.
Ooooh, thank you! I notice its a yellow bill, but I can see how that's closer to green than brown. Also, I do see the subtle darkness on the one on the left. Thank you! We go pick her out Saturday. I will consult my new fowl buddies if I need more clarity. Squeee!!
