Hi, everyone. Well my pekin is laying eggs, she started about two weeks ago and has laid an egg everyday. i know that isnt surprising to some other pekin duck breeder/raisers, but what i am seeing in my pekin hen is that she wont sit on the eggs at all.....not even on one that i would leave behind to see if she would go sit on it. I know that these traits have been taken away from them since they have breed for meat(or sometimes eggs) purposes, but i have heard of other pekin duck breeders/raisers that have wonderfull pekin hens who sit on their eggs and hatch all of them..........is this a trait in genetics that passes on to offsprings(so do their daughters come out the same? there should be that happening) It would be great for all the Pekin Duck Breeders/Raisers to post on their experiences with their pekin hens on their laying and sitting....mostly if your hen is that one of a kind great mother that sits on their eggs.....dont forget to post pictures too! (also before i forget, is there such thing as a show quality pekin duck? if so what is the difference...thanks! Thanks! Here they are clean! The duck wont sit so into the incubator! first time incubating so wish me luck! a little dirtier!
