    Large duck, doesn't fly, friendly, usually a good pet breed. I don't see a drake curl on the tail currently, so could be a girl. Does it go QUACK really loud,or more of a muttering whasp?

    yep,
    girl, pekin, been bred, at least 1 yr old and likes country music.



    When ever you see a hen thats got her feathers "ruffled" slightly, thats a sign that shes been mating or laying. Normally their feathers lay down like hair thats been combed....very nicely and near perfect. '


    If 'shes' loud and has a long extended quack that is like laughter or laughing...thats girl.
    Pekins are usually friendly and do well around humans. They are a little goofy but entertaining..

    The eggs will be large and white. Ducks lay them anywhere, not necessarily in a nest.
