Does anyone know what kind of duck he is?
https://www.backyardchickens.com/g/a/6556407/quacks-pictures/
I’ve posted a few pictures of my duck, Quack, in my album on here. (I have a million more; whether it is with me, my dad, or just himself, he looooooves posing for the camera. He’s the biggest ham, haha.) I have no idea what kind of duck he is. He’s white and has blue eyes, but he isn’t quite as big looking as a Pekin duck is. I’ve seen Pekin ducks before in person and while looking at them, all I could think was “You’re huge compared to my Quack!” He weighs 4 pounds and eats very, very well. He’s eating the Nutrena flock food and snacks like minnow, mealworms, veggies, etc. Based on my research, I think he could be a White Campbell duck, or maybe some sort of Pekin mixed with a smaller breed. Based on how he looks and his weight, I think he’s a White Campbell duck. His quacks sound more like a Khaki Campbell’s than a Pekin’s. I’ve asked people who have/had ducks and they’re not sure as to what he is. He hatched on December 19th, so he’s almost 9 months old. Based on his pictures/weight, what do you think he is? Thanks!

Your duckling is definitely not a Pekin, I can tell from his duckling pictures. I'm thinking he's a white mallard as he's the right weight for one. If he was a pound or so smaller, I would say white call duck.

I just looked up white khaki Campbell ducklings and there was one photo that looked like Quack, so that might also be a good guess. He's the right weight for that breed, too.

I appreciate both of your answers very much! I do think he's a bit cuter than the Aflac duck, though.

I tried searching for white mallards, but I don't think that he is one. I've seen mallards before and his body looks different than a mallard's. I stumbled upon a breed called the White Golden Layer duck this morning, and he sort of looks like them, too. As a duckling he looked like the illustrated ducklings in the first link. He's the right weight to be that breed.
I'm glad that I found this website. I've been trying to figure out what type of duck he is since he was two days old.

I had always wanted a pet duck or goose. He has turned out to be my most favorite pet.

Quack is definitely a he. I had thought that he was a girl at first because he was more vocal, but he has his drake feathers and everything. Thanks!
