    It looks like they can lay around 200/year.

    And don't forget, they are called Pekins, not Pekings. Peking duck is a dish, a Pekin Duck is a pet.

    I know, Pekins are meatbirds afterall. That wasn't what I was going for though. LOL. I kinda ripped off a saying I heard Martha Stewart say years ago: "You pee in a can, you eat a pecan." She was talking about the correct pronounciation of the nut, and I kinda copied with my own.

    The best layers are generally considered to be either the Campbells, a medium sized duck, or Runners, which are a bantum size.
