I have hatched out hundrends of Pekins from my flock. They are pure 100%. I just hatched out one with a black spot on the back and I can not figure it out. Any suggestions?

Until it gets adult feathers it doesn't mean a thing. If it is in its adult feathers you have a 'sport' or mutation on your hands. Did you ever wonder how the other breeds were developed from Mallards?

I hatched some last year, one of which had a black feather in the center of his back. It was the only way I could tell him and his sister apart. But it did molt out once they got bigger.
