    They are only 2 weeks old and already one of my babies is trying to quack! It is the one that does not have the black feather on its back, so maybe the black feather does mean the other is a male?

    Any white pekin breeders out there who know if the male ducklings are hatched with black on them? It is like one feather right in the center of its back. The other doesn't have it, and that one is trying to quack at me, in between peeps.

    I can't believe my babies are growing up so fast!! Last week it was first feathers, and now this [​IMG] Thank goodness I have more hatching this weekend [​IMG]
