    I did it finally. I gave in to the DW and ordered some ducks. PerfectlyPolish
    picked them out for me so I'm sure they are gonna be super cute.

    Anyways, I want a duck that looks like the AFLAC duck. You know, he's the
    white duck that screams APLAC in the commercials.

    What is he???

    Most likely a Pekin. They are about that size.

    He's definitely a Pekin and no, they don't say "Aflak" unless you're really, really wanting to hear that in their quack [​IMG] They quack like any other duck.

    If you want one that makes the loud quack you want a female. The males make a hoarse, quiet quacky noise. The females are loud and Pekins _love_ to talk. A flock of Pekin girls will rival a rooster.
