9 Meat

Duck Breeds

"Aside from beef, poultry such as chicken and turkey are the go-to sources of meat that we can easily get at the farm or market."

"Similar to chickens, ducks can be raised both for their meat and eggs. There are many species of ducks that are much bigger than chickens that could yield a large amount of meat per bird."

"Pekin ducks weigh between 8 and 9 pounds. However, the Jumbo variety is much heavier and could weigh up to 12 pounds per bird."


"These medium to large-sized ducks generally weigh between 6 and 12 pounds. Since drakes are much bigger and heavier than females, they can’t fly or jump to high places."


"On average, adult drakes could weigh up to 8 pounds while the females usually weigh around 7 pounds. These medium-sized ducks are a dual-purpose breed that could produce both delicious meat and eggs."
