Three Illinois Ducks; front and center

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to say, unless you know all the breed traits of these domestic breeds, I think it's best not to put a label on them because they could be mixes of domestic breeds or mixes of wild and domestic.  The same goes for other animals, like chickens - farmers breed two or more breeds all the time.  It's kind of like someone calling my mixed-breed dog a husky just because she has triangular, erect ears and is a domestic dog.  Birders tend to try to identify everything to species or breed and I am guilty of this.
