    I believe you. My little sebbie stood up and looked over the top of the brooder at me. They grow quick! I have seen none grow as fast as my first did at 9 weeks. They looked like adult geese.

    They are so cute!! I have runner ducks and they grew fast. They are 9 weeks old and have been as big as their mom and dad for at least a week now.

    At what age do the Pekin start laying and do they lay all year? I am asking because I am interested in that breed also. One of my Runner hens started laying at 21 weeks. She is a laying machine....lol Oh, how well does the Pekin lay also?

    Sorry for so may questions.

    I don't know what a Rouen looks like. I am going to go look that up.
