    I have 2, 4 1/2 week old pekins, & they are still pritty small,
    how long will it take for them to get full grown? [​IMG]

    Hmm could you post a pic? Pekins get huge fast so I'd bet you have call ducks or runners or something else that's not as big as a pekin.

    I've got two that are that age and they're flippin' huge [and need to GTH out of the house]. Bigger in girth than my chickens and coming close to catching up with the rooster in size.

    Yeah, my Rouens are the same age and they are bigger than my leghorn at this point, and catching up to the rest of the girls by the day.

    And here I was worried they would get picked on when I intigrate them into the new aviary in a few weeks......[​IMG]

    Post a picture. Are they eating well?

    Are they definitely Pekins? [​IMG] Worth asking, just in case! They'll grow very fast and will start getting feathers through in a few weeks [​IMG] Pictures of cute ducklings are always appreciated [​IMG]
