    I have a 4 week old duckling. I got him/ her at about a week old. My questions is, when I first got her, her bill was a bright orange color, now the bill and feet are more of a tan/ beige color. I was told she was a Pekin, is it possible for the bill to chance colors or is it possible a different breed?

    Thanks in advance~[​IMG]

    I'm thinking a different breed. My pekins still have the orange feet and beak.They are about a year old now.

    Would you know myabe what she might be. Her feathers that are coming in arewhite, but around her wings look tan.
