    Hi ducks!

    This link says they'll start laying between 20 and 24 weeks, so very soon if they're 4 months.

    It seems like most folks on BYC recommend a 30-day quarantine, but I don't know.

    as for quarantine, yeah ive had them in their own pen from the time i got them. But im worried about putting them in with a drake because he would mate them!!!

    Very nice ducks and I'm not a big Pekin fan but your little girlie is very sweet looking and I ADORE Cayugas.

    Nah, you know, just one of those little things where I knew someone who had Pekins and they were VERY unfriendly and one bit my brother. I'm sure they were the exception but it's one of those things I never got over. In my head Pekins are unfriendly, not pet type ducks.
