Pekins at Wagin free range duck farm 6

THE main breed for meat production of ducks in Australia are the Muscoy, Aylesbury, Pekin and Rouen. Most ducks produced commercially for meat in Australia are Pekin/Aylesbury crosses. The Pekin breed originated in China. Most of the ducks that we in Western Australia are able to buy are frozen and are coming from the Eastern States. Now Pekin ducks are being grown for our market on the outskirts of Wagin. The Brummelmans, Marc and his wife Leonie and Marc’s brother Jos set up their free range duck farm and soon to open their abattoir on their property. Marc and Jos are farmers from Holland who came to Australia in 1996 on an agricultural exchange and never left.

    Hello Mr Brummelmans,

    I have some Pekin Ducks for not a full year yet. The saying of “Eat like a Horse” should be “Eat like a Duck”, I am amazed.
    Could you tell me for the months of January, February and March coming up I have been getting no eggs at all for Jan and Feb. Is this the normal cycle.
    I give the ducks lettuce , wheat soaked in a bucket for 24 hours and a meat meal combination with shell grit.
    Fox’s are now a problem even during the day. Do you have a solution.Please.
