All our Pekin breeders are purchased from Grimaud Freres, a French poultry breeding company. Their first breeding efforts were with Muscovy and Mule ducks but quickly expanded to Pekin ducks, rabbits, geese, pigeons, turkeys and chickens. The strain of Pekin ducks we use is the Grimaud Hybrid Pekin, Strain 53. This is a fast growing, feed efficient duck. It is of 100% Pekin blood. It is called a hybrid as we cross males from their Line 50 with the females from their Line 30 to produce the commercial duckling we sell. The Line 30 ducks are a good sized bird and lay a high number of fertile eggs. The Line 50 ducks are a very large duck with outstanding meat characteristics. We sell from 5,000 to 12,000 ducklings per week of this strain for meat production.

If you do not want as large a bird, you can process at a younger age. Some of my customers are processing at 41-42 days of age as they only want a 7 pound live weight bird.
We will send you a Commercial Duck Management Guide with your first order of 120 or more ducklings - just ask for it when you place your order.

*Are you planning to purchase your ducklings on a set schedule? Prebook at least 5 orders by emailing us at metzinfo@metzerfarms.com. Specify your ship dates and quantity, we will price lock you into the next lowest price bracket. For Example, give us 5 ship dates for 80 ducklings and get the 120-299 duckling price bracket. Separate billing will occur the week prior to each ship date.


 

Customer Reviews of Grimaud Hybrid Pekin

Feb 06, 2021 | Great layers

These birds are laying machines, and also calm and easy to handle.  Laid at similar rate to chickens outside on pasture, kept going all the way through fall to their time off in late December January.
