    Does anyone here have a large layer flock of ducks? As in a couple hundred or so. I have a large layer flock and would love to connect with others who have large flocks to be able to share experiences and such.
     
  2. I'm not rasing a HUGE flock, but I am now raising six of my own ducks (four pekins and two mallards) and I am hoping to get a couple hundred eggs out of them in 2015. :) I know Pekins lay about 200 eggs a year, so if my pekins lay well all year, I could get about 800 eggs a year!


    (plus, I have nine chickens who are also laying. [​IMG])

    In ducks only? no. i do own almost 100 birds but that is a combination of ducks and chickens... majority however are ducks.
