    i know all ducks pant like doggies when they get too hot. My runners do when they are outside in the Bama heat. But my little 6 week old pekin seems to pant all the time. He's always just sitting there, panting away. I was thinking mayhbe it's a pekinthing since the breed has so m much fat/feathers. Any ideas? do your pekins pant alot?
