    I've adopted some pekin ducks from a local feed store and I forgot to ask how old that the ducks were. They don't seem very old, but I'd like to get an estimate so I know when I should change their food and etc. They're about the size of my hand (adult female). Im new to this website so whenever I find out how to post a picture I will.
