post #1 of 10562
Thread Starter 
I haven't found a club yet so I figured I would start my own! Pekin duck owners unite! Please feel free to share stories, pictures, breed information and most of all, have fun chatting with others about the comical, chatty and beautiful Pekin Duck!


My beautiful pekin, Soleil <3

I've ownly owned 1 Pekin and he was a bit shy but they are a lovely bird! Wouldn't it be great if they had a different colour variation besides White? Although... around easter time they make great chocolates!

Surprisingly my pekin is a pearly-yellowish color. She photographs white but with the naked eye you can see she's not hah. I love it!

What are your Pekins favorite treats?  Soleil likes swimmies (feeder fish), bananas, mealworms and peas!

Well Pekins are definitely easy tame. I don't know about kc's besides them being super cute. Give them lots of ducky cuddles as ducklings helps tame them and treats help too!
