In the forefront is a
juvenile chocolate barred
duck, behind her is a
chocolate ripple duck.  
This shows the juvenile
feathers of a barred bird,
once mature barreds are
primarily solid with
limited barring found on
the back, thighs, and
belly.  
Dark Ripple Duck
(this duck is a white-head
which does not generally

Chocolate Ripple duck
Dark Ripple duck
These are self-blue
barred and chocolate
barred ducks.  Notice
the barring along the
belly - that is just
about the only
indication that an
adult is barred.  They
will also have this
type of barring along
their backs beneath
the wings.
