    You're right! AC! - I haven't used the AC here since we moved from Houston. I am used to have the house in the mid 80's and prefer to have all windows open so that the wind can blow through and cool me down.

    I have an unrelated question. I posted this picture on another social media site and everyone is saying my duck doesn't stand like a pekins. It was bought at a tractor supply store and is suppose to be a pekins but now I'm not sure.. I have two that stand identical. I might also add they are still babies. Only 5 weeks old. What are your thoughts

    My other one in the back of that pic has an orange beak. I guess it doesn't really matter. Now do white layers get as big as a pekin?

    Is it possible they are white khaki Campbell's? All i know is my last duck which is my profile pic wad obviously not a pekin either. As I said it doesn't matter cause they are my babies and I love them but it would be nice to know what I have.
