Re: Advice on showing/exhibiting Pekins

first thing first get a copy of the breed standard then test your birds against it...........if you think they might do...............join the local poultry club and start showing its a steep learning curve but good fun...............good luck

Re: Drake bullying geese and younger ducks

a territorial drake can be a problem i suggest you contain drake(insight of flock if possible) and let the flock use pond for a month so they own it and then reintroduce drake and see if he accepts the status quoi
