Thank you! I won't worry about her then.
Pekin Duck Bill Colors (White vs. Yellow) - Page 3
I found this little bit on Metzer. I don't know if it helps.
"...If fed a diet high in corn or alfalfa, the beak and legs in Pekins can become very bright orange in color. As the hen lays, though, she begins to lose that orange color as it is used in the coloration of the yolk of her eggs. Oftentimes you can determine which of your Pekins are laying the best as they will have the lighter, more yellow colored bills. As time goes on, Pekins will often get black splotches on their bill. This is of no harm to the ducks."
Pretty interesting though. I'm hoping to get a Pekin hen this summer. My dad has been helping me so much with building my coop and the one thing he always wanted was "the Alfack duck". I'm hoping mine has a really orange bill for his sake lol.
