Pekin Ducks

Not only the most popular farm and commercial meat duck breed in the United States, the Pekin Duck is more prominently raised than any other breed of duck breed in the entire world. The Chinese were among the first cultures to domesticate Mallard Ducks as a source of eggs and meat, and the Pekin was eventually developed through years of selective breeding. The first Pekin ducks brought to the United States were found in their namesake town of Peking, China, what is now known as Beijing. They were first brought to the United States in 1873, and the Pekin Duck was admitted in to the newly formed American Poultry Association in 1874

They are the most common domestic duck and probably the most notable and recognizable as well. What makes the Pekin duck so popular? Pekins are an extremely hardy breed with a high level of fertility and excellent hatchibility. As pets, Pekin Ducks have a calm demeanor and relaxed temperament, providing great entertainment and socialization. They are the most common duck breed raised for pets. The Peking is a large and rapidly growing breed of duck, and with excellent feed conversion this makes them an ideal duck to raise for its meat. Not only a great meat bird, the Pekin is also an exceptional layer of large eggs. They are a relatively easy breed of duck to raise for pet, and are also an excellent food source for eggs and meat.

Pekin Ducks are commonly identified for being cute and fuzzy yellow ducklings and large pure white adult ducks. They are used commonly in cinema and advertising, as you may recognize the breed as the Aflac duck in television advertisements. With all white plumage, the Pekins have a bright orange colored beak that will begin to fade in the females while in egg production. As Pekin Ducks age they can often develop black speckles or splotches on their bills. This is normal and not a sign of sickness. Pekins are an excellent choice for a first time duck owner as well as the small farmer or self-sustaining restaurant owner wishing to raise ducks for their substantial meat and egg production.

Love my ducks. April 28, 2015
Reviewer: Stephanie S from Pound Ridge, NY United States  
Dear Efowl.  Thank you so very much for our lovely and adorable Pekin ducks . Your service was outstanding . You emailed and simultaneously called me to indicate to me when I was to expect my little birds.  Your instructions to my local post office were exact. The P.O. Called me at 6am in the morning to let me know of their arrival. I picked them up at 6:30am and brought them immediately home. They arrived safe and healthy.  They are a week old presently and my little ducks are thriving. Thank you again   Stephanie

Mediocre April 1, 2015
Reviewer: Steve B. from ST AUGUSTINE, FL United States  
This site is ok. First, the site wouldn't accept my ZIP code. The ducks took 4 days to get here, and it was only supposed to do. And with no water and food left, one of our 12 ducks died. The only thing they have going for them is that after 2 weeks of nurturing we have 11 healthy ducks.

Hi Steve,  Thanks for your review.  Looking at your order, it shipped on 03/23, and arrived on 03/26.  We normally see 2 day shipments to your area, but it looks like your order took a 3rd day in transit.  I'm sorry that you lost a duckling on your shipment.  Normally on an order like yours, we will include 1-2 extras, so chances are good that you still have your full order.  Please let me know if there is anything else we can do for you.  Thanks! ~Austin
