Rouens (pronounced ruins) are originally from France and, as you can see, closely resemble the wild Mallard but do not fly. Some gourmets prefer their meat over all other ducks. They are moderate layers, laying mostly greenish shelled eggs.
Indian or White Fawn Runners are from the Orient where they are used in rice fields, making them very good foragers. Their unique slender, upright stance makes them able to move around more quickly than most other breeds.
Cayugas are one of the few native ducks of North America. They are a hardy and quiet breed. Often they will lay eggs that are black or gray.
The Mallard is the breed from which all domestic ducks, except the Muscovy, originate. They can fly very well and can consistently hatch and raise a brood of ducklings. They are prized because of their delicate flavor.
Assorted ducks are our choice of breed.
