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.

Cayuga Ducks February 10, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from stockbridge, GA United States  
I purchased 5 ducklings in March of 2014. Over all I am very pleased with the birds. Their color is beautiful and their temperment is pleasant. I will, however, disagree with two aspects given as to their characteristics:
1. They are extremely noisy if not allowed to have free range. They get down right cranky when confined for too long.
2. Contrary to the add, I consider them to be quite prolific layers. Two of my hens are still producing eggs during the winter season.I noted that they began laying roughly at about six months of age. I got my first egg on July 31, 2014 and the rest of the hens soon followed; all laying an egg per day. To date, I have collected over three hundred eggs from 5 hens in less than a year !
I am very satisfied with them except for their tendancy to be very noisy in the early morning and late in the evening. They give my noisy dogs a run for their money!  I would also like to express my gratitude to Efowl for excellent service and delivery.
