    So I raised the Swedish Blue and ended up giving him away to my grandmothers friend who had the land for them at the time. But now that I have the land and I was talking about getting some ducks, shr told my grandmother that she would let me bring “Roan” and his/her friend home who happens to be the Pekin. I believe the pekin is a boy and I’m thinking Roan turned out the be a girl now that I look at her tail feathers but it’s hard to tell off of the one pic that she sent me. So I’m homing someone will be able to tell if I have two boys or a boy and girl or two girls. Either way it doesn’t make me not want to get Roan back. I saved him out the back of tractor supply when I worked there almost 3 years ago. I just would like to know what genders they are :)

    Ever got an egg? What do they sound like? Any curled tail feathers?

    I haven’t seen them yet. Haven’t seen Roan in about 2 years or so. Probably longer. When I gave him to them he/she was still a baby. They get eggs but Roan is with 4 other ducks right now. Please look at pics for tail feathers

    Pekin has a Drake feather and the Swedish is a female. Hoping you get them! I love how you rescued the duckling.

    Yeah I got Roan and Lemon. Roan had a respiratory problem and Lemon had a deformed leg so when they are sick like that they give them 2 weeks to get better then by the policy they have to “discard them”. I told them to go ahead and fill out the dead duck reports and that I was bringing them home. I took them home that night and when I got them home they instantly perked right up. Lemon’s deformed leg didn’t bother her but because she was deformed they couldn’t sell her under company policy. She lived for a year before dying loved at a farm where she made best friends with their dog. The dog cried for her for 3 months then he passed away. I know she was happy and I know she didn’t live long but I helped her get the life she deserved. She was happy and I’m happy that she was. Roan however the moment I brought her home she was perfectly fine. They offered her and her new pekin friend back to me last week and I am going to bring my Roan home! Along with her boyfriend of course! :love

    I can’t really see the photos on my phone, so I checked my desktop and I agree with Peking drake, and Swedish hen.

    I agree with Pekin drake and blue swedish female.
    I have two male Pekins! One named Quakers (not quackers lol), and the other Huey.
    I also have a blue swedish female:D her name is smokey :) your ducks are beautiful.
