Jumbo Pekin Ducks

This is the largest variety of Pekin Duck, which is bred for excellent size and fertility. This is accomplished by crossing a commercial meat Pekin (such as the Grimaud Hybrid), with a high egg producing and fertile female. This yields a bird that is very large, and can reproduce prolifically.

The Pekin Duck is the most popular and most commonly raised domestic duck breed not only in the United States, but in the entire world. Pekin ducklings are more prominent than all other breeds of ducks combined, and they are used most commonly for their efficient meat and egg production. The Jumbo Pekin Duck is the largest variety of the White Pekin that we sell, and though it is not bred to meet show quality standards, it is an excellent duck for meat production and will grow to an exceptional size.

The Peking and Jumbo Peking ducks are so popular because of their hardiness, high fertility, and high hatching rates for ducklings. Their large size, fast growth rate, and excellent feed conversion make them an extremely efficient for raising and producing quality duck meat. As pets, Pekins have a calm demeanor and relaxed temperament, providing great entertainment and socialization. Their hardiness allows them to adapt to just about any climate zone with ease, which is one of the reasons this duck breed is raised in every corner of the world. Finally, they are easier to feed as well, being able to derive adequate nutrition from a wide range of diet staples. Generally, the Pekin Duck will be a very good egg layer as well, but the Jumbo Pekin Duck variety is not quite as prolific of an egg layer as the smaller varieties.

Pekin Ducks were bred in China for thousands of years before they were finally brought to North America in the 1870s. They were admitted into the newly formed American Poultry Association in 1874. This Jumbo Peking is bred specifically to be a larger version of the White Pekin Duck for outstanding meat production.
