    Can someone tell me a little bit about showing ducks? My one friends daughter shows horses all the time and said she would show my ducks in 4-h -- or something like that. What defines "show quality" in mallards? Is it just the judges opinion? With showing parrots it's all about the "species standard" and feather quality. Would love to hear from some showers.

    If you''re interested in showing I would suggest picking up a SOP. It will let you know exactly what the desirable traits are for the breed.
