    I looked out on the lake to check on my Pekin boys, ( I have two males) and we have a THIRD white duck on the lake!

    I think it's female (no drake feather).
    She's smaller than the Pekins with a more slender neck like a mallard, white all over except for black v shape on her booty, and her bill is yellowish orange and looks like it has a little black on the bottow side. (not as bright orange as the pekin's bill)

    They are swimming around on the other side of the lake so I can't get a good picture right now. I'll try later.
    Any idea on what kind of duck she might be??
    White Mallard maybe??

    I wonder where she came from??

    In one picture you can see her with one of my boys, so this may give you some size comparison.
    Also, once I got a better look at her, the black is actually on the tips of her wings not on her booty.

    Any idea what kind of duck this is??

    I hope she likes it here and sticks around!

    That's not a duck! That's a goose! Look at the bill on your ducks compared to that pointy thing. I think it's a snow goose.

    True, though, I think it's a goose, too.
