    Hello, I have recently bought a duckling named Charlie. The man I bought him from told me that Charlie was either a indian runner or pekin duck but he couldn't tell since he was so young. Charlie is now nearing three weeks of age. I'm only new to BYC but I was wondering if someone could help me out and tell me what breed he is.
    It doesn't matter what he turns out to be but I was just wanting peace of mind (if that makes sense)

    Doesn't look like a Pekin to me. The body shape isn't exactly right for a Runner, either, but that is what I think it is.

    Thank you all for your replies, Charlie's goings fine, I Think he might be a pekin now that he's bigger.

    I believe he could be a pekin x runner, as he is quite light looking and has the racy head of a runner but his stance is like that of a pekin, as his is beak colour!

    I agree with the pekin x runner
    He has a pekin like face but can run like an indian runner but the stance is like a mixture between both
