    My mallard is getting some very vibrant coloring in the feathers... Lots of blue and white in the wings. Also has a dark crest, like a mohawk, but this has started looking a very deep green-ish cast in the sun.

    If this is a male, when can I expect the full green head?

    My mallards green heads were the last to come in as far as colors go..They were 16 to 20 weeks they had their full green heads...
