    Hi! I am going to be buying tow pekin ducklings soon and I was wondering how much food they would eat in about a week. How much food will they eat full grown? Thanks for the help. It means a lot.[​IMG]

    I don't really know exactly how much they would eat but I read on here once it is best to just always have feelings of avaible to them. Hope this helped[​IMG][​IMG]

    Metzer Farm has a duck feeding chart. It says a week old duck will each about 1/2 pound of food the first week. A seven week old duck will each nearly 4 pounds of food in a week. You can check out the chart at metzerfarm.com

    I have two pekins that are about 5 weeks and they eat as much as 20 chickens. It's crazy.
