Mandarin Duck Pairs

Mandarin Ducks are an unmistakable breed native to eastern Asia. The Mandarin drake rivals the North American native Wood Duck in its striking beauty and brilliantly colored plumage. Besides aesthetic beauty Mandarin Ducks share many other similarities to the Wood Duck; Mandarins prefer to nest off the ground in tree cavities or in man made duck houses and enjoy wetland environments.

Mandarin Ducks also exhibit an "Eclipse Plumage" during non-breeding months where they resemble the less flamboyant female Mandarin, but they can be differentiated by their red beaks. A few striking trademarks of the Mandarin Duck during it's breeding plumage are the rich brown colored "sails" on the birds backside and the brown "whiskers" with cream colored streaks growing from the birds chin and cheek.

Mandarin Ducks are a medium sized bird that fly easily and should be pinioned or kept in a covered aviary if to be kept captivated. Mandarins are easy to care for, eating nuts, acorns, and seeds during the fall months and feeding on insects and grubs during the spring and summer seasons. They do not typically associate with other ducks, but do enjoy the company of their own breed during the winter months.

The Mandarin Duck is an excellent duck to help stock a game farm or as a pet to enjoy for it's wonderful plumage. It is important to note that these Mandarin Ducks will be delivered as juveniles or almost full grown. This is a domesticated breed, but it is recommended to only purchase a Mandarin if you have either an adequate environment to house the birds or spacious land for them to nest and roam.

We sell these birds as Juvenile Mandarin Duck Pairs. You can expect them to start laying eggs this season.

Mandarin November 4, 2015
Reviewer: James Righter from Pace, FL United States  
Ducks were beautiful and in good shape. Disappointed with the shipping container Too small for 2 ducks, they were on top of each other. Had food though which was a good touch.

Fall Ducks October 29, 2015
Reviewer: Ronald Dolges from Hastings, PA United States  
The purchase of my Mandarin Duck pairs went very smoothly. They arrived healthy, and are very beautiful. I would not be afraid to make another purchase like this from efowl. This was my second purchase from efowl and like the first purchase there was no problems.

Mandrin Duck October 26, 2015
Reviewer: Brandee Reiley from Saranac Lake, NY United States  
My ducks were supposed to be pointed so they would not fly away.  I believe somehow the male duck must not have been pointed as he flew over a 10' high fence with in seconds of being let out of the box.  He as not been seen since.  We have looked and looked, left out food and hoped that the female would call him.  I called efowl and they said super sorry sometimes that happens, nothing we can about it.  I'm disappointed that there was obviously something wrong as the other duck has stayed no problem but your company wont do anything.  I can't prove i got the wrong duck it's gone )=
Hello Brandee,

Mandarin Ducks have clawed feet which allow them to climb trees as they are cavity dwellers and make their nests. When dealing with adult waterfowl, we cannot guarantee that they will stay in place for you. We always recommend a covered contained area to keep your juvenile/adult waterfowl until they are comfortable on your property and consider their new location a home.

Thank you,
Harry -CSR
