    I know this is for chickens but I have found some very useful information about pekin ducks on here as well. We have three ducks- one started laying eggs. My husband has been putting them in an incubator but I have no clue what to do with 9 ducklings in October. We won't eat the eggs ourselves but wouldn't mind giving them to someone instead of incubating them. Not sure what to do here and was hoping someone could help.

    You said your husband had been putting them in the incubator. Are you storing them up in there or did you start incubating them already? Duck eggs are wonderful for baking, so I'm sure you'll find plenty people who'd be happy to buy them from you, if you're allowed to sell them where you live. Otherwise I'd swap them with someone in return for some duck feed [​IMG]
