    Does anyone have pictures of the two side by side? My concern is my pekin male trying to get friendly with them and hurt them when they mature.

    I dont have picks- but I have both. I keep them separate more so for the reason that I dont want crossbred ducklings- But Harvey did used to escape his pen until I re-fenced a year ago- He would run and run and run after them- but very rarely actually catch one to be able to mate with her. My camera batteries are charging- but I will get a photo shortly if someone else hasnt posted one in the mean time.

    Quote:Ok great! I think I may just go for it and get a couple. Any way to tell girls from boys, they're probably a couple days old.

    I dont have Pekin drake and female Runner but I do have Pekin female and drake Runner so you can see the size of the 2.
