    Anyone know or have a guess what brown guy with the silverish grey head would be or crossed with?

    Yanno he looks an awful lot like our Khaki Campbell drake when he's not in courtship plumage.

    I have to agree with TrystInn. My Campbell boys looked like that before they got their fancy feathers.

    Khaki campbell has a more darker head...i'd say a buff drake if not a mix with buff and something else

    Well, I think the standard calls for up to 7 or 8 pounds, but don't quote me on that. I have seen *quite* large Buffs though.

    CallDucks- Buff x Buff should virtually never produce a bird with a green head. The head should be a medium seal tannish-brown, although they can vary depending on a number of factors. The homozygous blue dilution should eliminate any green in the head. Now, in some other countries like the UK, what they consider Buff is heterozygous blue dilution, so naturally there is more variation in color. I am not sure where they OP is, but the bird (to me anyway) looks like a regular Buff that is typical in the US.
