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.

Confirmation of our ducks healthy delivery November 10, 2015
Reviewer: Brenda Strickler from Lafayette, IN United States  
All of our duck are thriving now.  We did have one that was almost dead when they arrived.  I spent the day warming her and getting her to start taking water and then food.  She is fine now, but is literately half the size of the others.  Actually all four ducks are different sizes.  This does help me tell each one apart to call them by name, but I have never seen such a variation in ducks the same age.
