    Just a quick question.

    My pekin drake is really a beautiful and friendly bird. About a month and a half ago or so he got his drake feather in. Well i have now noticed after the past 2 weeks, he actually has 2, almost 3 curly tail feathers. They curl all the way around and touch his back.

    I have read that this is more desired, and show quality, but I dont know. Just wondering if anyone knows, most of the drakes I see only has 1 drake feather.

    thanks

    My Khaki Campbell has 3 and the mature Pekins and Rouen I had before also had 3 curls. I thought it was normal to have multiple feathers and not just one? [​IMG]

    My 2 Pekin drakes have 2 or 3 each. They are feed-store purchases.
