  1. got a large pekin duck last sunday at TSC.. just a few questions though... do they fly at all, and if i have a female how many eggs will she lay.... also my step mom says that Quackers( thats his /her name) needs a buddy and I MIGHT get another one but dont know yet.....any other infor about this breed would be grateful

    I have 2 pekins. One drake and one female. I think they really enjoy company, after all, who wants to be alone, right? No, they don't fly. I believe because they are domesticated, they have been bred to be a heavy breed, so no, they can't get off the ground. You will love them, they are real sweet, and lots of fun to watch too.
