I got a new Pekin yesterday from an elderly rural farmer who has bred and hatched his own for a number of years. The Pekin is a male and about 10 months old, and he is GIGANTIC!! This is him next to my Pekin, who I got at the feed store a couple months ago. I'm sure my 2 month old Pekin isn't full grown yet, but will it really grow this big!?! This other Pekin, who we named Benny, is so huge. I can't decide if my little Pekin is a male or female. It does make some louder noises than Benny the Giant Pekin, but it's not as loud as some of my definitely female Pekins that I rehomed this week. Maybe I'll just have to wait and see if one of those curly feathers appears? What age will that feather grow in? Here's a last picture of Benny. I think he's a fine looking duck, I can't wait until he gets a little more tame.
