    I thought I had 2 female pekins - around 5 months - but all of a sudden one of them has grown a curly tail feather - but besides that they both seem identical in looks and vocalizations.

    So do I have a drake?

    If they sound the same, it is most likely that they are both drakes, maybe the other is just a late bloomer [​IMG]
    This is a great example of the drake's 'quack'-
