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.

Sickly and carrying Salmonella July 30, 2015
Reviewer: Bernard Addenbrooke  
This is my first time having ducks.  I was very excited to get them and have done the research and bought all the supplies.  Next I order 31 ducks from eFowl and wait.  The morning they show up at the post office I pick them us to my surprise they are week and 5 are dead.  I spent the first few days running around nursing them back to health, chaining their litter, adjusting their heat, giving them fresh food, and fresh water.  One week later I have 15 remaining duck.  To top it off I am at home suffering with Salmonella from these ducks. I rue the day I purchased from eFowl.

Hi Bernard,

Thank you for your review.  Whoa, it sounds like you have a very trying experience.  I'm very sorry that things went so poorly.  Your order arrived overnight, so to experience such high losses on the pekins upon arrival and shortly after suggests that had a very rough trip.  It doesn't look like you contacted us after they arrived per our Live Arrival Guarantee (https://www.efowl.com/Articles.asp?ID=4#live-arrival-guarantee), but after I saw this review I reached out to you for some more information.  We've extended our guarantee for you, and refunded you for the birds you are short on the order.

When we exchanged emails, it sounds like you had a good care setup.  Thank you for following the instructions so closely.  

Finally, salmonella is something that we take very seriously, along with our partner hatcheries.  When I reached out to you requesting additional information regarding the doctor / veterinary report, you refused to provide this.  Please note, this is not something we've had reported in or around your shipping date (or ever for that matter).  Furthermore, the hatchery (Metzer Farms) performs testing on a quarterly basis to maintain a high standard of biosecurity.  If you would like to provide the documentation regarding the salmonella, we can definitely investigate this further.  

When it comes to salmonella, a little precaution goes a long way.  The first line of defense is of course hand washing.  For more tips for safely caring for live poultry, please check out our care guide (https://support.efowl.com/hc/en-us/articles/205445055-eFowl-Waterfowl-Care-Guide ).  Thanks, Austin

Satisfied July 20, 2015
Reviewer: kelly oakley from New Holstein, WI United States  
I ordered four little ducklings and received them exactly on the day I was told! Even though one of the ducklings didn't make it, I would order from efowl again! They were very prompt in answering any questions and offered a refund without hesitation!

Pekin Ducks July 14, 2015
Reviewer: Jordan Drischler from Monongahela, PA United States  
I ordered three Pekin ducks.  When they arrived, one was very ill but we were able to save him.  All three are now happy and healthy.

Wonderful delivery July 9, 2015
Reviewer: pamela Green from Winnabow, NC United States  
We were so thrilled with our delivery of the 4 baby Peking ducklings. After a weasel invaded our duck pen and took 3 of the 4 ducklings we had for our grandsons we were devistated.  We searched all around our area for replacements, but it was already too late in the season.  When we found your website and we're able to replace these babies for our grandsons it made our day.  We now have ducklings for our grandson to name when he comes down to visit in a couple of days and our 1 remaining duckling has become the mommy to the new ducklings.  We will be sure to recommend your website to anyone looking to start a flock or replenish due to unforseen circumstances.
