IMPORTANT ORDERING INFORMATION: Eggs are collected fresh from our breeding flock and shipped by USPS Priority Mail. Hatching Eggs are labeled with breed code to help with ID during incubation. Eggs can be shipped year-round, but please use your own discretion when ordering during extreme weather. We guarantee that your eggs will arrive unbroken but will not guarantee your hatching success because of the many variables with shipping, incubating, and hatching. Breakage must be reported upon arrival.
Jumbo Pekin hatching eggs are a great way to get started with incubating duck eggs. They’re a widely popular breed, meeting all of your egg, meat, or market exhibition needs. These fast-growing birds, with high egg production, are a homesteading staple. Females can be part of your meat harvest, or they can be grown out for egg production at 26-28 weeks of age, while the males can go into your breeding or meat production program. Females will lay up to 140-175 eggs per year. Jumbo Pekin will be ready for harvest in 18-20 weeks, with males weighing in at 11-13 pounds and females weighing 10-11 pounds. Eggs will be white to light bluish-white in color.
