Your Pekin duck may be an Aylesbury cross.

vk is right! I just found out today that my pekin is actually a long island duck and yours may be also. true Pekins stand up right, somewhere bred with the Aylesbury and the pinkish bill is actually from the recessive Aylesbury gene! so.interesting to learn all this information

My Pekin Ducklings bill is turning a pale blue almost. It started out flesh colored and now is a lot paler. He seems to be fine otherwise.
