Maybe a mallard or a runner?
Definitely not a runner... Mallard?
Mallard ?, is my guess also, gosh its cute where did ya get it?
Privett, my husband wanted a pet duck and I asked them to just toss a random duckling into the box with the chick shipment.
It's a Mallard or a Rouen.
I would say its a Rouen.
Rouen or Muscovy I would think?! (I think that yellow stripe on the wing is more common of Muscovies)
Who'd you order it from?
Mallards and Rouens look very similar, but there is a difference in the eye stripes. Rouen, 2 stripes. Mallard - 1 stripe and a smudge or dot. I just learned this the other day from another BYC member.
This little guy is a Rouen
Quote:Oh thats good to know! I think it must be a mallard. Doesnt matter either way- it'll be fun.
I wonder if theres a way to tell the gender by markings....
I don't know about it, this is my Rouen
Same eye pattern as yours.
