I was wondering if anyone has seen or have a pekin duck lay eggs?
Quote:Ok, I don't know if it's me but I find this to be a strange question. I have a pekin and she lays an egg everyday.
How old is she?
I am also wondering how old a Pekin is when they start to lay...
I think it depends on how old they are their first spring. Mine was a year old in the spring and that is when she started. I have one the is about 6 months now so I don't expect her to start until the weather starts getting a little warmer next year.
Duckboy, is this a trick question? How did you think they reproduced if not through laying and incubating eggs?
I get a huge white egg from my Pekin girl every day. I want more girls because those eggs do not fit in a jumbo carton and taste delicious!
I think my girl was about 7-8 months old before she laid.
Anybody know if they are seasonal or year-round layers?
First thought to pop into my head:
Where do Pekin ducks come from?
I guess I need a second cup of coffee.
Pekins are a meat breed, so generally not heavy layers. Some lines have been bred to lay eggs, so how much your Pekin lays is going to depend upon what strain of Pekin you have.
As to what age they start to lay, they lay whenever they are darn good and ready.
