Peking duck breeders at 66 days
The development of the peking duck breeders are very promising. So far the livability is at 95-96%! The average weight is 2.5 kilos for females and 3 kilos for the males.This is in spite of a strict controlled feeding program! The housing improvement of Dr. San Diego has reduced heat stress and addressed the sanitation issues. The ducks are now very clean and relaxed. We hope to get a very productive breeding from these breeders by October this year and eventually produce certified f1 ducklings by December 2010 - January 2011.
The last picture shows me holding a big male breeder.
