    Well the babies have made it to 6 weeks and are HUGE!!!!! they are still living in the house. How old do they have to be before they can go out to the coop? They each weigh about 5 lbs now and are eating reg duck food.

    ok what are cherry valley ducks? Im still very new to this. I was told these eggs are from pekin that were ordered from a large hatchery, the kind you order from a feed store.

    They are hybrid laying ducks basically. So they are crossbreeds
