I have had hundreds of pekin ducklings but I hatched one that came out with a white patch on it's head and a white belly and tail. I asked around and only found 1 person who has had this and they said it had to be culled. They are 11 days old today and doing great she's gotten alot whiter and the rest are still all yellow. Just curious if this means shell be a different colour when older or what?

No I'm definitely keeping it and yes it's a female, lucked out with 2 males out of 8 hatched. Just curious if anyone else has had one like this and if it was different from the rest as an adult.
