    What do you want to know about them? Are you thinking about them as pets, layers, meat?

    I can tell you that mine is loud and messy and I love her more than I ever thought I would love a bird.

    I got my Jumbo Pekin from Metzers and im realy happy with the way she turned out. At 8 weeks old she is as big as my adult Pekin ducks. I wish now I had got more of them. Nothing nicer than seeing a flock of white ducks in your yard. They are realy messy and noisy and I love every minute of them.

    I hear you there! I ordered a few Jumbos from Metzers also and I have been nothing but pleased with them. They live up to their name for certain. They are some of the friendliest ducks I've ever owned, although, yes, they are messy and noisy and they love to eat. But I'm still quite happy that I got them.​
