    Is she fully grown or still growing? While they are still growing, their bills and even the color of their feet often change and this change often starts with being mottled. Don't really remember if this happens after they are full grown. However, look at the male Rouen....he becomes a beautiful "Mallard" in the Spring, Summer and Fall but then all winter long, he looks like one of the girls and is no threat to them at all.

    One of my female Pekins has that too. I looked it up and it's a normal coloration change for some ducks. It has to do with hormonal changes and you can ignore it. :)

    Hey all! We have new pekin babies here as first time duck owners. When are they old enough to be with out a heat lamp and stay outside full time? They are around 3-4 weeks old now.

    Got my first duck egg from my girl Puddles!

    [​IMG]

    Thought it was from my Indian Runner at first because it was a greenish color. Just washed it and it magically turned pure white!

    Looks more like Anconas to me. If there is no color on their best they might be Magpie. Gotta wait and see I guess! Anconas are an endangered duck breed so that would be nice for you!

    That would be nice if they were Anconas. Really wanted Pekins but Anconas are beautiful too!
