    We just got two ducks for free this weekend and the couple said the little dude is a Rouen and the white one, a Pekin, but what's up with her bill? Is she Pekin, a cross or something else entirely. Thanks guys [​IMG][​IMG]

    Not sure if she is a cross, but definitely not full pekin. Pekins have orange bills and feet. She's very pretty tho [​IMG]

    Thank you, yes, she is a cutie. I was expecting a yellow to orange bill, but I like that she is unique. :) These are our first ducks and we have fallen instantly in love!
