A German Pekin Duck

Welcome to our German Pekin Duck Website

The German, in "German Pekin" standard, means they have the "upright" carriage, almost like a penguin or an Indian Runner duck. They also have that lemon yellow tinge to their plumage.

 

πŸ“Œ Links to more information on this breed can be found at the bottom of our website.

 

Did you know that the Pekin is on the Rare Breeds Survival Trust’s most important document, the Watchlist?

Yonkin Farm Pekins - July 2022

 

 

Best of Breed 2017

Our Ducks

2017 was a good year for our Pekin ducks as they were entered and well placed in a number of shows. These included the Domestic Waterfowl Club (DWC) Open Championship Show in October and the Royal Welsh Show in July. In November we had Best Pekin in show at the British Waterfowl Association 30th Champion Waterfowl Exhibition held in Stroud.

 

In 2018 we took both 1st and 2nd place for male and female Pekin at the Royal Three Counties Show Malvern and then awarded Best Heavy Duck. We also were placed at both the DWC and the BWA exhibitions as can be seen in the photographs.

 

2019 saw us take 2nd place with a male and female at the BWA exhibitions and 1st place at Malvern

 

The only significant show in 2021 was the British Waterfowl Association 33rd Champion Waterfowl Exhibition held in Stroud, where 20 Pekins were entered.

 

We took 3rd place with a yellow card. All other shows planned for 2021 were cancelled by APHA on the 8th November due to Avian Influenza - Bird Flu

 

For 2022 we will be breeding with a range of females and a number of selected drakes, all of which are show stock.

Hatching Eggs

Our Pekin ducks become "active" in late January and they started laying a little late this year, around 13st March. They should lay until mid June - so sorry we have no eggs until around March 2023

 

The price for 6 Pekin duck eggs is Β£25 which includes 1st Class postage.

 

We also offer a Gift Voucher for 6 hatching eggs available from March 2023 until June, making a unique Christmas or Birthday present for that aspiring breeder of Pekin Ducks.

 

You may order online - πŸ“Œ Click to view or send us an Email and we will send you a PayPal invoice.

 

We offer their eggs for hatching once they have settled into a laying routine, when fertility is naturally higher and the eggs are of consistent size and shape.

 

All our customers are invited to access our resource pages and read our 32 page guide to hatching Pekin duck eggs. (Login sent with order acknowledgement).
