The Ringed Teal is one of the smallest species of duck, with bright, beautiful plumage, which they keep year round. The bill is blue, and the legs pink. Ringed Teals have a black crown and green secondary feathers that are visible while they are in flight. On average, they will grow to 14-15 inches in length and a weight of 11 - 12 ounces.


Waterfowl collectors report that Ringed Teals do well in mixed collections, but may be bullied by more aggressive species. Their expected lifespan in captivity is 10-15 years.


This breed is becoming increasingly popular because it breeds well and because it remains colorful year round. Ringed Teals do form a strong pair bond, but not necessarily for life. Somewhat unusually, male and female Ringed Teals have different calls.
