Pair of Young Adult Pekin Ducks - One Female and One Male - 4 Months Old

This listing is for an ADULT PAIR of Pekin Ducks! They are very close and attached to one another and MUST go as a PAIR. There is one MALE and one FEMALE both approximately 4 months old.

Pekins are calm and extremely friendly, probably one of the friendliest of all duck breeds. Their docile temperament makes them an ideal breed for pets. Pekins are also very hardy. They can live in nearly any climate with few problems. They’re resilient and don’t get sick easily.

Commercial Pekin ducks are produced by crossing a male from a large, meaty strain of Pekin with a female Pekin from a medium sized, highly fertile good egg producing strain. With this cross you get a large number of ducklings from the female that grow into good sized birds because of the size of the male.

Please note our breeders do not look particularly large as they have been on a diet most of their life prior to egg production. By keeping them slim and trim we are able to increase egg production by at least 40% and fertility by 10%. If they are not kept on a diet, the males reach at least 11 pounds and the females 9.5 pounds in three months.

The Pekin duck is the most popular breed for eating and they are the most common domestic duck. If managed carefully, they have excellent egg production too. The duck can be processed around 40 days old when it reaches around 7 lbs. The Pekin are calm, do not fly, and are excellent pets!

Purpose: Dual-Purpose Production: 200 XX-Large White Eggs/Year Temperament: Calm, Active Mature Weight: 8-12 lbs. Hardiness: Cold and Heat Hardy Broodiness: Occasionally
