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.

Not so sure April 30, 2016
Reviewer: Sadness from Ohio  
We received our order and one of the babies was very small and weak; we followed instructions warm not hot sugar water it seemed to be doing better had them in with the others and all seemed well.  Two days ago I found the little one dead, removed him and cleaned the nest area, now yesterday morning they rest were acting fine one seemed a bit sluggish, {have been feeding started food and room temp water} ..two more of them were dead, only the Caygua ones the Pekin and the three other ones are fine, why are we loosing the Cayguas' any suggestions they are kept under a heat lamp out of drafts clean area (purchased a new small coop they are confined to the nesting area) what did I do wrong or is it the breed?  we have had success with our mallards, our pekin and and the few kahki ones (cyotes got a couple over the winter but health wise they are all good).
