The Jumbo Pekin Duck is bred for size primarily and not for show. They are approximately 15-18 percent larger than standard white Pekins, and weigh about 9-13 pounds. Commercial Pekin ducks are produced by crossing a male from a large, meaty strain of Pekin with a female Pekin from a medium-sized, highly fertile good egg-producing strain. With this cross, you get a large number of ducklings from the female that grow into good-sized birds because of the size of the male.
