    I have two ducklings and one(on the right) is what I thought was a Pekin, but it has these feather poofs on its cheeks. I was wondering anyone knows what those are?[​IMG]

    I'm sorry I am not seeing them can you get a better pic? Sure are cute littles.

    I'm guessing the poof might be the little spot of feathers that sticks out behind and below the eye - that's his ear. That ducklings feathers just don't lay quite as flat across the ear.

    Unless you mean something else, and I don't see it either.
