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.

Good and Bad! Tough Ducks! December 10, 2014
Reviewer: Eric Bleak from St George, UT United States  
We ordered 10 ducklings. The post office called me right when the truck arrived in the morning so that I could get the ducklings as soon as possible. There was however a problem. The box had gotten wet somewhere along the way and the sides were crushed down 1/4 of the way the the top of the box was caved in on the ducklings and folded back on an edge. 4 of the ducklings were running around in the truck! 1 was crushed in the box as the rest in the box were trapped up in one small corner! The good thing about it is that there was an extra duckling so we did end up with 10 and even the ones who were out in the truck ended up doing just fine! All are still alive and no worse for the bad situation! Tough Ducks!

Reviewer: Marsha Rominger from Belews Creek, NC United States  
All 5 duckling arrived on time but were cold.  The heat pad was cold too.  They seem to be developing just fine and we will see soon if they are all female.

Very happy with this duck. December 1, 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. ***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.***  Update: this is the quietest and calmest female duck I've ever owned, both of those things are good.  She's definitely a female, with very beautiful green to turquoise tones on her feathers in the sunlight.  I'm very happy and will order from eFowl in the future.
