Pekino the deep-drawn cup drinker* for Pekin ducks

Pekino is a drinker for ducks developed by Big Dutchman in cooperation with the Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences and other experienced experts. The drinker ideally meets the biological requirements Pekin ducks have regarding water. Not only can the ducks easily drink from the cup, they can also wash their bill and submerge their entire head thanks to the cup's special design. These are important prerequisites to keep the ducks healthy and thus lead to ideal fattening results.
