    I have 6 pekins(4 females 2 males) and one of my drake's tail feather is not curled. I know that he is a male though because I've seen his drake feather before. My ducks are 7 months old now so I can tell what sex they are. His drake feather has always been there up to about 3 days ago. Can anyone tell me what is happening?
