I still dont have a clue what this little crested one is:
Whats your guess?
Quote:I'm almost sure that's a crested Pekin...
I would also think pekin, though its head looks grey? Maybe it's a swedish? Where did you get it?
I was told it couldnt be a pekin becouse of the color of its beak.
it came from a feedstore from the Assorted bin
Its head does look a bit grey
I hadn't even noticed the bill. But you're right, pekins usually have orange or pink bills as babies. I would say it's a blue swedish, possibly a splash, which is also possible with swedish ducks.
I know its possible with swedish ducks, since I'm in love with the breed:
I just never had a blue swedish so young, so I had no clue what it was
Yeah, that's what I would say it is, a splash swedish. If I remember correctly, the color of this one's bill would mean it's a girl, but don't quote me on that part!
I remember reading some where tyhat you can tell the gender by their beak color,but I dont remember where. How do you tell? What color means girl? What color means boy?
Gosh, I don't remember for sure, if you do a search on here for it you should be able to find it.
It seems like it was something about an all black bill for one sex and a pink and black bill for the other, but I'm not sure. I don't have swedish myself, and am just *trying* to go by memory of what I have read on here!
ETA:What I meant was crested Call ducklin lol I just can't get it right today...
