A review on: Pekin
TheMauveDuck

Pros: Gorgeous, Excellent layers, Hardy

Cons: Loud, Protective, Messy, Aggressive towards other ducks

As an owner of five Pekin ducks whom are over a year old and hand raised I feel like I've had time to observe these beautiful animals. They stay in the preferred area in and around their run and under the shelter of trees always. They move together as a group so as long as I see one I know the others aren't far behind.

“ I've had Anconas for over a year now, after admiring them for awhile before then. I LOVE them. My two hens are fantastic egg-layers. Since they started laying early this spring, they hardly ever miss a day (except for my hen who went broody - she took a few weeks off during incubation, and then about 1-1/2 weeks after they hatched she is back at it!). They are also quite calm and friendly,...” --wordgirl

“I actually posted in a comment by mistake but I love my Aylesbury drake.  Absolutely adore him.   He has so much personality.  I had two brothers but lost one to a fox attack.  They are not aggressive, they love to wander around the garden, they shout a lot and dont like being on their own.  My boy needs a companion but i have to wait until Spring when its breeding...” --julia305

“We have a drake and two ladies for him.  They are a joy.  They are our ducky order patrol, parading the property, checking in on the other animals, offering suggestions, keeping everyone in line and making sure we all are in our proper places.  They are the epitome of duck sense.  All three will tolerate being held and petted, and bob their heads and call...” --HnkyDnkyZZFarm

Call Duck

“   I love call ducks!  They are the ideal duck for persons with not much room for bigger ducks.  To those close to neighbors, I suggest a pen of males as the hens are vocal.   These ducks are quick and efficient insect and worm eradicaters.  Provide them with a kiddie pool for hours of amusement.  With one wing clipped, they won't fly off.  They are...” --NajmoNests

“These are definitely ducks with personality and individuality! I have three and I'm extremely happy with this breed. They are strikingly beautiful and fun-loving, and quite intelligent. They run all over my yard and LOVE snatching up every slug and snail they can find, playing in the sprinkler, and trying new things to nibble on.  Mine are just over a month old at the time of this...” --Ibicella
