    Anyone have any pekins in the area? Adults or ducklings are fine as long as they aren't "old."

    I sold them last year and found I was the only 1 b/c they are so expensive to keep as ducklings that most breeders won't bother w/it b/c there is no profit. I have rouens as my only breed now b/c they don't eat quite as much as the pekins, but are also more easy to sell b/c of their looks. Although, I, personally, really liked the pekins. Good luck.

    I'd like to end up with a pair of them as breeders. I'm more interested in raising some as meat birds more than trying to sell them. I would like to have my own pair because ducklings are so hard to find other than right around easter. I know I could order some eggs and hatch them myself but I'd rather buy ducklings or ducks right now.
