I love this product. I cannot believe no one has reviewed it yet. I started with the chick version- and moved up to this. While at work all day, I wanted to keep my girls busy. This product is...
I bought one of these when I first got my birds- I have since converted it to an oyster-shell dispenser- works wonderfully for that function in my coop. This past summer, I bought a second one to...
A very good book. It's full of very useful information, pictures, and tips. I'd recommend it.
I think this waterer is great. It only holds 2 gallons of water so if you're a younger, older or out of shape it's not too much work to carry from the hose to the coop. It's it's very easy to fill...

LOL. Massive is right for Pekins. That's a lot of the reason that they're one of the main ones raised for not living long. Well, that and the light skin that presents well if you're into that sort of thing.
The BO cross sounds very possible with yours based on the way you describe their plumage and now knowing they're a little, just a little, smaller than the end of the standard scale. All the standard scales depend on pure breeding many generations back, so they're not at all dependable with crosses. We had a KC that bonded and mated (a lot) with a Rouen drake, and the progeny turned out much closer to her size than to his.
Yeah, the lady that I got them from said they looked like buff ducklings, but when their adult feathers came in they were pure white. They are very fluffy and round like a pekin, but have the body size of a buff.Learning through living with my 8 ducks - 1 Chocolate Runner, 1 Blue Runner, 1 Fawn and White Runner, 1 Khaki Campbell, 2 Welsh Harlequins and 2 Pekinspost #7706 of 1043810/5/15 at 7:56pmQuote:here's a bunch of pics. In the pics u can't see his drake curl, JoJo is always on the right. Lily is real white. Jojo has a yellow tint. Its the best I could do.

They are so pretty! She looks like a healthy weight to me - she will definitely benefit from a healthier diet, but she doesn't look overweight. Have you tried weighing her yet? When we need to get a quick weight of a duck we will weigh ourselves on our bathroom scale, then weigh ourselves on the scale while holding the duck. Some quick math - and you have the weight. We should just buy a small animal scale - but this will do for now.Learning through living with my 8 ducks - 1 Chocolate Runner, 1 Blue Runner, 1 Fawn and White Runner, 1 Khaki Campbell, 2 Welsh Harlequins and 2 Pekinspost #7709 of 1043810/5/15 at 8:06pmpost #7710 of 1043810/5/15 at 8:09pmQuote:
No, you hold them and then step on your scale. Then you subtract your actual weight, to get the ducks weight. Does that make sense? You weigh yourself holding the duck on your bathroom scale.Learning through living with my 8 ducks - 1 Chocolate Runner, 1 Blue Runner, 1 Fawn and White Runner, 1 Khaki Campbell, 2 Welsh Harlequins and 2 Pekins
