So I have been trying to find some research on raising pekins for meat. I have seen few things but not really much. I just ordered 20 ducklings from Ideal. This is my first year doing ducks for meat. What is the best time of feed for meat ducks? How much can I expect a single duck to eat between hatch and butcher date? What age is best to butcher pekins? I have read 7.5, 12, and 18 weeks? Whats the best for most meat to feed ratio? Sorry for all the questions, I am just curious how to save the most money.
