    that bird is absolutely not a call...............
    not knowing the age doesn't help..............
    Aylesbury's haave pink bills but they are large with a deep keel at adulthood.............

    anyway she is not a call............... [​IMG]

    I never realized there were so many- I got the four in my other picture for my girls at Easter, thinking I would have four of the same kind - they were dyed Easter colors, so you couldn't tell anything about them....was I suprised at the turn out. I have since obtained 4 more: two more mallards and two muskovies....we love them....I just bought a kennel and am trying to make them a pretty home.....still have a long way to go!! Here is what we have so far:

    Looks like a Pekin to me. Maybe she has Runner in her, but I don't think she's a direct cross. She has those "classic duck lines." She almost looks like a white mallard hen but her legs look heavy. Nice duck.
