    Definitely a Pekin! The normal, but beautiful large white domestic ducks. Unfortunately you can't tell the gender by their looks until they get their adult feathering (4-5 month). But, by 4-6 weeks you should be able to tell by it's voice. Loud quack/honk sound= girl, soft whispery sound= boy. Your duckling looks to be maybe 2 weeks old, but thats just a guess.

    Have fun!! Ducks are a blast!

    It is SO cute! :) I had 6 Pekin ducks two years ago, but sadly I had to get rid of them. I now have a goose and I am hopefully getting another one soon.
