    I don't know, but I wish I did. She's beautiful, I want one.
    What did she look like as a duckling?

    What a pretty duck! I think she might be a Welsh harlequin. I could be wrong, though.

    Not a Pekin, but maybe some Pekin in her. She's adorable. PS How old is she? Do you know for sure it's a girl? Boys when they're older, say 4 or 5 months get what they call a drake feather, which is a curlicue feather on their tail. Boys also have little wimpy quacks and the girls have loud, deep honking raspy quacks. Not that it matters if you only have one. But you'll need to give her tons of attention, since ducks prefer to be with their own kind. If possible, I imagine she would greatly appreaciate a duck buddy if you can swing it. Lotsa good info here.

    That is one absolutely gorgeous duck! Stunning!

    But I don't know a thing about duck breeds beyond Cayugas. Sorry!

    Quote:I think I might have to agree with this one. How big is she? If she is small she might be a snowy mallard. Here is a pic of my indoor snowy mallard
