3 days ago I talked to a neighbor, They had rescued a pair of ducks and momma started laying & brooding right away and hatched out lots of cuties. Mom is Rouen & dad is Pekin. I went over and picked up 5 of them, they kept 2, and the rest were going to a special child. They were in a good sized pen with plenty of grass to forrage but they did get feed too(no idea what kind). They were 2 weeks when i got them and I have only had them 3 days but MAN!! they have gotten to be such fat little things! I am just amazed how heavy they now look in the chest & underbelly! I have raised Pekins before but never Rouens..i never noticed this 'heaviness' with pekin ducklings so does this come more from the Rouen side? I did not see dad up close so maybe he was a Jumbo Pekin?? they're just so fat now!
