    Hi , Im a duck rehabber here, I was handed this little girl as a 1 week old duckling, I put a fluffy toy and mirror in her box and she survived well.
    Now she is grown up and hasnt got flight wings, so im guessing she is a domestic breed.

    She is a rouen or rouen khaki cross perhaps.

    What did she look like as a week-old duckling? Rouen ducklings have mallard-like markings and Khaki ducklings are chocolate brown (sometimes with a yellow blotch on the breast).

    I also think she looks like a rouen khaki cross or mallard khaki cross. the flight feathers havent come in yet. Even non flying ducks get flight feathers.

    She looks a little long legged for a rouen. Maybe a cross.
