    Okay so I got some ducks from a sale and they were listed as Pekin, but clearly are not. One of them was a Pekin grew fast like my other Pekins and is fully feathered and huge. The others dont have hardly any feathers and have only doubled in size vs reached adult pekin size. Also their heads are turning black. So heres some pictures and give me your guesses.

    Muscovy? Or Pekin x Muscovy crosses?

    Muscovies for sure, you can tell by the way they walk, I would suggest taking a look at feathersite they have a pretty good bit of information in them.

    The one that looks horizontal when it walks is a Muscovy. One of the others looks exactly like that one.

    The one in the front in the group picture has a slightly different head, so might be a different type of duck. Maybe a Muscovy cross.

    If I got Muskovies for Pekin prices, I'd be happy.
