    I have a male and female Pekin duck, and I was just wondering how long it takes for the drake feather to grow in......??

    maybe 4-5 months. I don't have Pekins but I believe that's what I have read. Muscovy's don't get the drake feather.

    I have a call drake i found it took quite awhile, honestly i knew by voice long before that feather appeared, maybe calls are slow lol Either way i would agree with ML, pushing close to 5mths basically when they become sexually mature.
