Incubation Period For Pekin Duck Eggs

I have been asked what is the incubation period for pekin ducks.

Hi, I just wanted to ask about my peking duck.  She has become broody and is laying on her eggs, but I am unsure how long the incubation of these are.


Pekin duck eggs take 28 days to hatch from time of incubation. If your duck is still laying eggs then she won’t start to incubate the eggs until she has laid a clutch of eggs which could be 6-12 eggs.
