Anyone raise meat ducks?

Hi all. Im thinking about raising a few Pekin ducks for meat. Anyone have some experience on this? We've never raised birds for meat but would like to start with a few ducks this spring...any advice would be much appreciated!

Pekin ducks are loud, situate the pens away from the house, preferably with something else like a bunch of bushes or an outbuilding in between you and them. Do not name them if you haven't been eating your own animals, if you name them you grow attached.
