What is this Mallard cross breed with?

Postby BenellisbeII » Mon Nov 18, 2013 9:59 am

Hey guys been trying to figure out what this Mallard is cross breed with and not finding much information from other sites around the internet so figured this would be my best bet posting it on here. My old man shot the duck and its now mounted, duck was shot in North Dakota. We were thinking its maybe cross breed with a domestic duck????

Those Mallards with the white bib on their chest are called common park ducks or Marina Mallards.

It's not crossed with anything, its a domestic mallard that escaped from someone's farm or flew in from the city park. Domestic mallard.

The taxi didn't say anything or ask why you were mounting a park duck?
Why do I shoot 3.5" for geese? Because they don't make a 4" yet!

As far as I know the taxidermist didnt say anything. Well it must not of been that domesticated if it flew into a pot hole in the middle of no where in North Dakota. Thanks for the information though, I've asked tons of people and fianlly someone had an answer for us.

Those black ducks with the white bib are called "Swedish Blacks". They are a domestic duck.
