Gorgeous day old Pekin Ducklings. These become the beautiful stately white ducks with orange beaks you see at ponds. Lots of fun and good egg layers.
PROBLEM WITH DUCK FEED: We have notIced that some ducklings react to the high level of protein in the chick starter crumble recommended as duck feed by some breeders. This has caused swelling of the leg joints as the body of the duck can grow too fast for the leg joints. This can cripple the duck.
They live for 5-6 years and will only lay for aprox 3 years. Ducks are more seasonal with laying and may stop or slow down their laying in the cooler months of July through to Christmas. If you do end up with a drake (male duck) they tend to be quite placid and love bossing the girls around.
As these are so popular, there may be up to a 2 week wait for the babies to arrive. We will stay in contact with you if a delay should occur. They will be worth the wait.
