    Have 1@ male/female pekin ducks and they are 6 1/2 + years old. they appear OK now and only difference noted while aging is female,for past year, nests in bushes/tall grass during day. they are penned/fed at night and free range early a.m. to dark. how long can I expect healthy pet pekins to live?

    most ducks live between 6-10 years on average, but some can live longer, upwards or 15 and sometimes more...
