Description:

Mallard/Domestic hybrids. I thought this is a good way of showing the variations. There are several domestic ones that were released by there owner because they never laid any eggs a couple of years ago. They were not all mail as one of them was being mounted by others on the day these photos were taken. A fifth one came along and disturbed them from resting in a dried up pond overflow due to dry weather and a leak.
The domestic ones are white.
