The Pekin is an American breed of domestic duck from birds brought to the United States from China in the 19th century. Reared principally for meat, it is bred in many countries around the world and is an important part of the commercial duck industry. The Pekin is the inspiration for Donald Duck and the Aflac duck.
Arthur Oscar Schilling (1882-1958) is a renowned painter and illustrator of animals and landscapes. He was the official artist of the American Poultry Association and illustrated the American Standard on Poultry.
