Originating in China in ancient times, White Pekins 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. They are the easiest domestic ducks to pick and prepare for eating.

Thank you. they arrived safely and i love them. they are doing well and they are happy.
Our three female Pekins just arrived. Three, bright- eyed, fuzzy wonders that flew over many miles to get to us! We were all very excited to get to know one another. All three girls had a big drink and began to eat with vigor as soon as we put them in their box. Thank you so much for sending us such happy healthy girls. We look forward to many swims, bugs, worms, trips to the garden and foraging in the yard!
I bought 2 Peking ducklings for my daughter to go along with our chicks we just got. The ducklings arrived this week. They are adorable, happy and healthy. My daughter LOVES them and can't stop playing with them. They are very sweet and love being held. They also appear to be very hardy.
Ordered 6 Pekins in April (2 males,4 females). They arrived in perfect shape and were so adorable! Six months later, they are doing very well and are quite entertaining.The girls lay several eggs daily. Last night, temps dropped in the teens and this morning went out to play in their pool. Very happy with my purchase. Thanks McMurray!
I ordered 2 White Pekin ducklings, and they arrived today in great condition and began eating and drinking as soon as they got home. They're really friendly and super adorable! I am very pleased with my order!
This was the first time ordering this breed, they are very friendly and healthy. Thanks Murray.
We got a few Pekin ducks from your hatchery last year (through a friend) and my son took a pair of them to fair and won Best In Show. We were thrilled - we had no idea they were such fine ducks! Thank you.
I ordered 7 Khaki Campbells and 3 White Pekins from McMurray Hatchery. They arrived in single digit temperature weather and are very lively and healthy. They immediately started eating. They even slipped in an extra White Pekin for the trip. Their customer service is as friendly and helpful as you'll find anywhere today. Keep up the great work!!

I bought 10 White Pekins from you guys about 6 months ago and I still have them, and let me tell you they are the sweetest ducks ever. I'm so happy and I'll buy from you again.
thanks alot McMurray Hatchery.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Last year my friend and I, (we were 13) bought 17 duckling from you, a mix of pekin's, khaki's, and rouen's. We were so pleased with them! They all survived, and now have ducklings of their own. Thank you for providing such great quality ducklings!
I was extremely pleased with the Pekin ducks from Murray McMurray. I entered two in the local 4-H fair and one took champion.
