Cayuga Ducks

Cayuga Ducks are characterized primarily by a black bill and black plumage with a beautiful iridescent green sheen in the correct light. Their coloring makes the adults one of the most beautiful of the domestic duck breeds. As the Cayuga Ducks age, they will gradually develop more light colored feathers, especially the females. This is natural for older Cayuga ducks. The breed is thought to have been developed from the Black Duck breed in the Lake Cayuga region of New York, being one of the only domestic duck breeds developed in the United States.

Cayugas are recognized as one of the most adaptable of all domesticated ducks and are active foragers. Adults are fond of eating snails, slugs, and most other insects. They are the most popular exhibition breed in the medium weight class. The Cayuga is not a prolific egg layer by any means, but they are known to lay varying shades of gray eggs. Rarely, a Cayuga female will even produce a pure black egg.

For those who wish to keep ducks, but live close to others that would make keeping the Pekin impractical because of the loud quack, The Cayuga duck is a recommended alternative as its quack is not as loud or frequent as the Pekin duck. These ducks exemplify a quiet, calm, docile temperament and they do not fly. Cayuga ducks tend to stay close to home, making them an excellent choice for a home flock or as yard pets.

perfect August 20, 2014
Reviewer: Steve from Albion, NY United States  
All ducks arived healthy, happy, and in great shape. I was concerned because they did have a several day trip, but the thought and attention paid to packing them was evident. Now they're growing like weeds!

Not sure if "she" is a she, but otherwise happy. August 12, 2014
Reviewer: Rachel Mathis from Valrico, FL United States  
This duck came with a mixed group of six types of ducklings - all received in great shape. Very pleased with the order, generally. ***This one sounds and acts suspiciously like a male - I really hope not since I already own an adult Cayuga male and finally wanted those beautiful black eggs.  Will update stars to a five if I'm wrong on this and I can edit my review.***
