    This is Louie. He's 3 months old and just recently developed a green head. Up til recently he's been just black and white. Now his head and back feathers are that awesome green/blue/purple iridescent color. I've never seen another one like him. Is this a normal call color or could he be mixed with a mallard or something?

    I've had him since he was a week old. When I got him, he was black and white and his siblings were all white. He's remained black and white til the last couple of weeks. I love my calls! I love all my ducks (11) of various types, but my calls are still loving and sweet. I just wish I knew what color he is called...if anything lol

    I was going to guess a black bibbed, but without seeing his chest would be hard to tell...looks like he has more white there than what a bibbed should have. You sometimes see certain self-blacks have greener heads when they are in full male nuptial plumage and I am guessing this is the case here.
