Sorry I couldn't wait to find out their names, I was excited a new duck. I love ducks! Glad you love mutts too!

Mutt's are lovely, I don't believe anyone should consider them less valuable because they are hybrids. I have only ever owned "mutt" dogs, and I use the term with love. After all, what's in a name? That which we call a rose
by any other name would smell as sweet!

Dislike the term "mutt" period, it takes away from exploring. This duck is beautiful to watch just not in a pure id name due to cross breeding. Still beautiful to me.

Love the term "domestic mutt," much better interpretation of the species.

Domestic mutt. Looks to have Cayuga, Duclair, and Crested in his genes.

Looks like a Duclair duck...with a tuft

Looks like a strange dark-bodied morph of a Mallard Duck. The little feathers curling upwards by the rump are usually pretty indicative of a Mallard, especially with the green head and the shape/color of the bill.
