    We got this duck from a friend who's dog killed the rest of the flock. She said she's a Pekin, but her bill is spotted. And she's on the small side for a Pekin.

    I don't know, smaller than the Pekins, bigger than a mallard. Maybe 2 lbs lighter than the pekin.[​IMG]

    So I was leisure reading my duck book and found this[​IMG]
    This is probably the white meat duck and could be what you have. She could also be a noncrested crested duck( it happens).
