When do pekin ducks start feathering?

    I have only one duckling that I hatched from 12 eggs and he is a pekin and is around 5 weeks old. He has feathers sticking out of his
    "wings" but nowhere else. Is that normal? And I forgot to mention, he was hatched from an eBay seller.

    Any Help?

    It'll be another week and a 1/2 or so. [​IMG]

    You might (possibly) have gotten a cross, but I somewhat doubt it.

    Looks like an average 5-week-old pekin to me. [​IMG]
