    I bought 4 ducklings from Tractor Supply and they did not specify on the names of them. I asked the worker and he said “they grow into really big white ducks”. Can somebody please help me figure out what breed they are. Thank you.

    Does anyone know how big they will get? Right now I have a adult khaki Campbell and she is pretty big.

    Pekins are meat birds so expect her/him to get pretty big, Bigger than your Khaki that's for sure.

    they will get a good bit bigger that the khakis... as they are a heavy breed
