    I recently did this mount of a mallard that had both male/female characteristics. I have done several hydrid birds, but never one with both male/female traits. Maybe someone could help me identify this bird. I think it made for an interesting mount.

    I did one last year that had both female and male characteristics. I'll try to find a pic.

    I have done several mallards showing characteristics of both sexes. The cause can be two things... If the bird is very old, hormone levels drop causing them to show traits of the oppositte sex. Cause two, the bird received an injury to the reproductive organs causing the abnormal look. Learned this from a federal waterfowl biologist buddy of mine.

    Here's a wholesale for ya.....not finished or injected (that's what he wanted, so it was cheaper, lol!) Still like it though:)

    kjs92681 Yall com back na, ya hea !

    It may be a cross between a mallard and a motteled duck or a black duck, who knows. I have herd of a few guys killing mallard/pintails, i have never saw one personnaly, but i know on one of the Duck Commander videos he kills one, or has one that is dead, he says they killed it.

    Nice ducks bekcy! weird that injected feet isn´t always part of the deal...i think it should always be done in birds.
