Jumbo Pekin Duck
They are probably the largest Pekin you can get. For exhibition they are excellent for Meat Pens but do not have the special conformation necessary for show Pekins. They have been bred for size and meat production, not the specialized standards of show Pekins. 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.
For those raising ducks for the first time, Pekins are a common entry point. For those who are exploring all the duck breed options, Pekins may seem ordinary, but they’re still worth considering owning. They come with a host of attractive traits. They’re popular for a reason: they can do just about everything. Pekins are unbeatable meat birds, good layers, pretty, friendly, calm, hardy, fertile, easy to find, and just lovely little ducks overall. Whether you’re new to ducks or experienced, whether you’re interested in ducks for eggs, meat, or pets, Pekins are not a breed you can ignore.
