Pekin Duck Hatching Eggs

The Pekin Duck is the most popular domestic duck breed in the United States, and it is raised all over the world because of its ease to raise and its wide range of desirable characteristics. Hatching Duck Eggs of your own can be an extremely rewarding process, and its excellent hatchibility makes the Pekin Duck one of the best breeds to start with. Other than being an excellent egg proucer, the Pekin Duck widely popular because of its hardiness, excellent fertility, habitability, calm and friendly temperament, large size, and fast growth rate.

The Pekin Duck was originally developed in China over 1000 years ago after being the first people to domesticate the Mallard Duck. The name Pekin Duck comes from the city of Peking that is now known as Beijing, and the birds were originally bred for meat purposes. They were a great source of food, and their continual breeding has developed a bird that is fast growing, hardy, and has an excellent feed to growth ratio. When the Pekin Duck Eggs hatch, the ducklings will be furry and yellow, and they will also be extremely small and fragile. Be sure to have the appropriate brooding area ready for them upon their hatching.

Hatching duck eggs can be difficult for beginners, and specific incubator instructions must be followed very carefully in order to have any success. For that reason alone, the Pekin Duck Hatching Eggs are excellent for those who are just starting out or those who are inexperienced and just want their kids to have the joy of hatching their own baby birds. Hatching Eggs are also great for classroom experiments or school projects.

Hatching Duck Egg Info

To ensure your own duck eggs hatching an incubator is required. These are available at a wide range of websites and also at local farm supply stores. To hatch fertile duck eggs, it is of primary importance that you follow the specific instructions that come with the incubator you are using. We can provide basic instruction for hatching duck eggs, but it is best to use the instructions for hatching ducks that will come with the incubator you have purchased.

Fertile Duck Eggs can be safely transported for about 10 days before they will no longer hatchable. We guarantee fertility in at least 80% of the hatching duck eggs that we ship for your order, and we recommend you candle the duck eggs in the first few weeks of incubation to check for fertility. Though we cannot guarantee that any or all of the fertile duck eggs will actually hatch, we will give you a refund for any hatching eggs that appear infertile if it is more than 20% of the total eggs received. It is imperative that you report the infertile hatching eggs within the first two weeks in order for us to process any refund.

eggs April 24, 2014
Reviewer: Stacey Yarbrough from Pinson, AL United States  
I am a classroom teacher and this is the third year I have incubated eggs but the first year I have used your company. I had a few concerns or mishaps. When I received the eggs two of them were already cracked (in the shipping container.) I am aware this probably happened during shipping and is no fault of yours. I know that not all of the eggs are expected to hatch, however I am on the 14th day of incubation and only have 8 out of 20 eggs with an embryo. This number is lower than I have in the past. I am not expecting much luck with my hatch. I had to use the money from classroom fundraiser to raise money to purchase the eggs.
I faxed my order on a Monday and somehow it was overlooked. I had to resent the order several days later. because you only ship a few days of the week, my hatch date was had to moved back a week. This had them hatching during state testing. I planned so that this would not happened and had actually stared communication with you several weeks before I ordered.

Dear Stacey,

I'm sorry to hear you had a poor experience. Unfortunately we do not take orders via fax; we only accept orders over the phone or online. Orders purchased online will result in the fastest processing time. eFowl's egg fertility guarantee states that when a customer orders, pays for, and receives fertile eggs for hatching, we guarantee that 80% of the eggs ordered will be alive at the first candling. In the event that the customer has fewer than 80% of the total number of eggs alive at the first candling, the customer will be entitled to compensation for the cost of those eggs. In order for the customer to be entitled to compensation, he/she must report the less than 80% egg growth within 14 days of receiving the eggs.

Harry, CSR
