Mallard X Duck (farmyard duck)

This is a pretty farmyard duck, it has come to our lake about a year ago, I'm not what it is exactly, so, if anyone knows what it is, please tell me.

  1. maybe a male mallard/muscovy cross. we had a hen mallard/muscovy cross here for a couple of years. they are mule ducks so can't reproduce.

    he's pretty.

  2. Beautiful photos of these wild duck Bob.
    This duck is a subspecies of the real wild duck, his parents have mated with another kind of duck.
    I hope you understand what I mean to say.

  5. That's what I had in mind too, Bob. Maybe a Mallard crossbreeding. Your pictures are great as always. Have nice weekend with hopefully dry weather. Greetings, Joke

  15. Is this a quiz...I'll opt for Aylesbury cross. It's not a problem. He is probably an it. An inbetweeny.
