Description

There were two of these ducks associating with a fairly large group of Mallards. I have never seen a duck like this and I can't seem to identify it. They were larger than the Mallards and had darker bodies with white chest feathers. Could it be a domesticated or a hybrid duck?

The answer is likely yes to both being domesticated and hybrid. This duck certainly is part mallard, part something else, likely Muscovy; a common domestic duck in the US.
