    I know nothing of that breed?
    looks like a pekin to me.
    but if you knew the breed why ask ?
    just look the breeds up and see which matches your duck .

    It could be a pekin or an aylesbury, I have trouble telling the two apart. Pekin is more common though.

    How old is the duck? Full grown? If I remember right, the Aylesbury looks like a very large Pekin but the bill is pinkish, not orange like a Pekin. Could be that yours is a cross between a Pekin and Aylesbury.
    At any rate, it is a very cute duck. I love the looks of both breeds. I miss my Pekin, she was so very sweet.

    I would say White Layer duck. Bred for egg production.
    They look very similar to Pekins but are generally more lean and lay a ton more eggs

    I never heard of a "White Layer". Interesting. How would you tell the diff between them and a Pekin besides the body weight? At any rate, he is a cute duckie.
