The Pekin Duck is used primarily for egg and meat production. It was bred from the Mallard in China. Over time, the ducks slowly increased in size and grew white feathers. In 1873 nine ducks were exported from China to Long Island, New York in the United States and the animals and their meat are sometimes referred to as "Long Island duckling" . Around 95% of duck meat consumed in the United States is Pekin duck.
