Buddy told me he shot a 6 curled mallard the other day and he was all excited racing on his way to the taxi.
Told him nice burd, but there is no such a thing.
The max they will have is 2 if you plug em out of their butt. Sure, you can seperate them and make em look like 4 or 6. But lets stop the 4-6 curl Mith, or lets not, hell i dont care.

Interesting. I've seen lots of three and four curlers. I'm gonna have to pluck the next ones to verify.

Found this post, I think Matt knows what he is talking about...

This. A 2 curl mallard has 4 curl feathers. To have a 3 curl mallard would mean 6 curled feathers

I could be wrong, but that's not how I interpret Matt's post. I read it as regardless of the number of feathers per curl (note, its number of feathers per curl), a mallard properly groomed displays 2 curls. Minimum 2 feathers per curl, so if the feathers come apart on both curls, 4 curls could be displayed on a bird with 2 feathers per curl. Six curls could be displayed if each curl has 3 feathers, etc..

You guys are confusing this with the Ole Beaver's farm raised mallards he shoots, not sure he has actually seen a wild mallard but I will assure you to say there are only two curl feathers on a mallard like he originally said in his first post is dead wrong. If the feathers are split you could make out 2,3, 4 or whatever you want to see.
Beaver let the man enjoy his harvest, your wrong anyway.
Enough with pounding the beaver again, lets go second part of the season.
