Rouen Ducks

The Rouen Duck is duck breed very similar to the popular Mallard Duck in its plumage, but the Rouen will grow to be much larger. Their colorful and familiar Mallard colored plumage makes them a quite popular duck breed for pets, show ducks, or simply to stock ones pond. This breed of duck is named after the town of Rouen in France. They have been raised in France as large and tame versions of the Mallard duck for hundreds of years, and the Rouen was first brought to the United States in 1850.

They grow slower than the Pekin, thus you will be able to enjoy the maturation process for a bit longer. Like Pekins, Rouen ducks are members of the heavy duck class. Unlike their smaller Mallard cousins, Rouen ducks are too large to fly. This makes them a more suitable pet duck, as you will not have to worry about clipping wings. The Rouen Duck is not known for its egg laying abilities, but it is a large bird that will produce a substantial amount of fowl meat if processed.

These ducks exhibit a quiet and calm temperament, making them an excellent choice for a home flock or as pets ducks. Rouens are very sociable and entertaining, and will certainly become excellent friends as you raise them.

Reviewer: Judy Ferris from Medford, OR United States  
As soon as they arrived at the post office I was called to come pick them up.  They have already tripled in size and are doing wonderfully.

Ducks By Air - Again! May 19, 2015
Reviewer: John Janusas from Liberty, NY United States  
So all 9 Rouen ducklings flew in safely, and landed at my post office at 6:30am last Wednesday.  Since then, they have grown to at least twice the size!  These are beautiful and strikingly calm ducks.  I have some mean Pekins that constantly harass my Runners, and so hopefully the Rouens will grow up fast and bully the Pekins back - they deserve it.  As always I am very happy with my ducks from Efowl.  Hopefully the ducks are happy with me.  I mean, I do feed them (and the wild Mallards that fly in, who probably say to each other "No, I'm dead serious, that idiot puts free food out, even in the middle of the harsh winter!  Let's party at the idiot's pond!".)  Anyway, sorry for rambling, but I love Efowl and our new Rouens!
