This study determined the effects of differing plumage patterns (wild, dusky, intermediate) and feed forms (pellet, mash, traditional) on egg production performance of Philippine Mallard ducks. A total of 189 ready-to-lay ducks were used following a 3 x 3 factorial in a completely randomized design. No significant interactions were noted on overall egg production, feed consumption and feed efficiency for six months of laying. Egg production for ducks fed pellet was higher (P
