Mallard Duck Hybrids & Mutations

Mallard Duck Information and Photos

Mutations:

In captivity, Mallards come in wild-type Grey patterns as well as Snowy, White, Blonde, Blue Fawn and Pastel. Although most of these colors are rare, there is a steady increase in the number of domestic collections containing these varieties.

Hybrids:

Mallards frequently interbreed with the American Black Duck, Northern Pintail and domesticated species, leading to various hybrids. Joel Webster offered the following insight: "Mallard drakes really are not picky and go after other ducks without courtship."
