    The One duck was a rescue from the side of the road. The 2 Pekins I got from TSC and have had them for most of their live (all of 3 weeks). My Pekins are happy and well, so I don't want to upset them or get them sick. What type of Duck do you think it is? [​IMG]

    Sure looks like a black swedish to me.

    Set it up with an unbreakable mirror and a stuffed toy with no little pieces that could get pulled of and swallowed. And of course water and food and warmth, and bedding, all that. There are many happy Pekin-Swedish flocks. You just need to take your time, if you can get a fecal sample to a vet to check for parasites that would be good.

    But keeping the new little separate for a few weeks, watching closely, things will probably work out pretty well.

    It's a cutie.
