    I am new to ducks. I was told my duck was a female mallard but she is now 9 weeks old and not a quack. I also saw a female mallard in my pond and she looks nothing like her. Is it possible I don't have a female mallard? Maybe a Khaki Campbell mallard mix? Maybe a male?

    It looks like a female Khaki Campbell to me.

    I had a female that was really quiet. She would only quark under distress.

    Your female Mallard is a Khaki Campbell drake. [​IMG]

    Is this why she sounds like Donald Duck telling me off?

    Judging by bill color- a Khaki campbell or cross drake. Definately not a mallard.
