    Morning all,
    I'm picking up a female Pekin that is from Easter of '07. [​IMG] The woman I'm getting her from says she's laying big, pretty white eggs. My question is how long do ducks continue to lay?

    Ducks can lay well for years. I have several who are 4 years old laying like mad. Pekins will lay less, but for a long while. My Miss Matilda Pekin Duck lays very well and she is over 5 years old.
    I love pekin girls. I wish I had more. They are so ....quacky! [​IMG]

    Thanks Terrie, I also did a post about her in the injuries. Can you look at that also. There's no pic yet.
