The White Pekin breed of duck is the type of duck used in making the AFLAC commercials. The Pekin duck originated in China and was introduced into the Americas in the 1870s. Admitted to the American Standard of Perfection in 1874. The White Pekin duck has a fast growth rate making it an excellent choice for meat. They are entertaining and very active with a good hatching ability. White Pekin baby ducklings are one of the cutest and most popular ducks for pets and were featured in the television series “Friends” and several of the Disney kid shows.
Thank you so much Cackle Hatchery! Tractor Supply didn't have ducks in time, and we are new to ducks.We have never had them. So after reading great reviews on Cackle hatchery, we decided to go with Cackle. We ordered 3 Pekin Ducks and 3 Rouen Ducks on Wednesday. They arrived today (Friday 13th) and all are in perfect condition! I am very happy with our order and we will for sure be buying from here again! Thanks again for making this a great experience!

Adorable ducklings! Review by Christy
I am SO impressed with Cackle Hatchery! We have ordered from other hatcheries in the past and will never go back. All of our birds arrived in fantastic condition, lovingly packaged with a grass mat to keep them comfortable on their long journey. Our Pekins are thriving and will grow up to be our beloved backyard pets. Thank you, Cackle! (Posted on 5/12/2017)
