    PLEASE HELP: How do I know or find out if my White Pekins are Jumbo White Pekins or just regular White Pekins?

    What are their ages and sizes? Can you post some photos?
    I have one Jumbo Pekin Hen and one standard size Pekin Hen

    They are both males, 6 months old, and I feel they are pretty big, defiantly the size of my rat terrier who is about 12 lbs and about the size of my jack russell terrier who is about 15 16 lbs. however I am not sure of the ducks weight!

    Heres two pics of my boys! I am about 5'3" and 105 lbs so you can compare his size a little!

    Definitely jumbo pekins, the ones I had were twice as big as my 'normal' ones [​IMG]

    Awesome! I am so excited! I love them! Now the hard part! To track down a local hatchery that I can get two baby jumbo white pekin female ducklings through... ugh! LoL! How are they as far as sitting on their eggs?
