Jumbo Pekin Ducks

Baby Ducks - pekin ducklings

Duck Eggs start @ $12 a dozen (in season), let us know if you want them for incubating

← Here are our first Ducks on their first day at the farm in March 09.  I just know they were plotting something against me!

Duck Egg

Check out how much bigger the Pekin Duck Egg is compared to our Chicken Eggs!  You only need 1 Duck Egg to 1 1/2 Chicken Eggs in a recipe. Our duck eggs average over 85 grams, while our chicken eggs average 55 grams.

Here they are on the right only 2 months later.  It is amazing how big they got in such a short time.
Originating in China in ancient times, White Pekin Ducks were brought to the Western World in the middle 1800’s. Their fine meat quality and egg laying ability quickly made them the first choice of American duck growers. Both the male and female are creamy white in color, yellow skinned, and very large breasted. The males carry a fall weight of 10 to 11 pounds and the females weigh 8 to 9 pounds.

You can freely substitute duck eggs for chicken eggs in cakes, pies, cookies, custards, etc. Because the whites of duck eggs have more protein than those of chicken eggs, they will whip up higher when beaten and create more loft in cakes. This means lighter, higher cakes. But since the yolks are so rich, your cakes may also be richer with duck eggs.

HEALTH BENEFITS: Besides being great to bake with, duck eggs are sought by cancer patients. Apparently, duck eggs are alkaline (basic), chicken eggs are acidic. Cancer cells don’t thrive in a basic environment, so some cancer patients adjust their body’s environment by eating alkaline foods like duck eggs

Egg sales are tendered automatically on the eggs for sale page on a first come first served basis.  Those who go to the website and order have their orders filled in the order in which they are received.  Orders are deemed desired ASAP, so do not order your eggs without a note stating when you want them delivered, UNLESS you want them right away (2 to 4 days from time of order).  At times we are back ordered (we are waiting for birds to lay eggs [demand exceeds supply {production}]), which means your order will still be filled after eggs are laid.  If you need hatching eggs (especially if you are a school) on a certain date, especially a popular date, it is best to order your eggs 4 weeks or more in advance noting when you desire to take delivery.

We have previously had a few Khaki Campbell Ducks that we hatched. We were going to use them as a great source of duck eggs.  But someone bought them all.  So we have recently bought a flock from a local duck breeder.  We got the whole flock of Khaki Campbells.  They just started laying eggs.  I have about 10 ducks left in the flock.  There are way more Khaki Drakes than Khaki Hens.  I have Khaki Campbell duck eggs for sale for hacthing OR eating.  Price, currently $3 each, is determined by supply and demand on these.  I am getting many eggs as it warm and sunny at Furbelow Farms.  I will be adding a Khaki Campbell duck page soon.  But for now if you need Khaki Campbell hatching eggs, Khaki Campbell ducklings or Khaki Campbell drakes or Hens, please contact me email, or call 804-492-3007.  I have a KC hen sitting now, due any day, Khaki Campbell Ducklings!
