Splash – White Mandarin Duck
The White Mandarin in it’s own rights is considered by most as one of the most ornamental of the world’s ducks, the White Mandarin Duck is a very popular aviary bird and commonly seen in many collections. They are closely related to the North American Wood Duck and both species are the only members of the genus. Despite the close relationship, there have been only a few reports of hybridization, but none have ever been documented or proven.
White Mandarins are NOT Hybrids, they are in fact a Mutation which occurs naturally in the wild. The reason it is not seen often is that these lighter colored birds are often preyed upon because of their light color which makes them stand out.
