I know a lot of these posts get started, but I'm going to add one more. This mallard was shot in mid-January in Arkansas. I've seen people on here reference hens with hormone issues that take on drake characteristics. Is this what this is? It's a small bird and really didn't have many pinfeathers except up the neck it had very small ones on the inside like a hen seems to get this time of year. Breast and area between shoulders seems to look like a hen. The tail has a few spots like a hen.
