    What breed is this? A snowy mallard? This is not my bird, I just think she's gorgeous :)

    I'm going to guess welsh harlequin but I don't know what a snowy mallard looks like.

    ETA: I think you are right and it's a snowy mallard.

    I have a hen that looks like that. She is a cross between a Pekin and a Rouen. When we hatched the eggs from these crosses the chicks all look a little different. Just like the chicks in your picture.

    I don't know. It looks like a mix. Maybe a KC mix.

    Not sure if this pic uploaded. This is my baby girl, Spike. I've raised her since she hatched, she was caught in a bad wind storm and displaced from her Mom. So she now lives with us.
    Can anyone tell me her breed? I have a duckling pic of her also.

    Hi Spike's mommy. Spike definitely has some Mallard genes. You can see this by the markings around her eyes. She could be mixed with some other breed. Good luck!!:):)

    I agree with you. Could be a cross of Khaki Campbell or Buff along with something else. Can he/she fly?
