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.

Never any issues! May 3, 2016
Reviewer: Garland Walsh from Wallkill , NY United States  
This is our third purchase of live birds from efowl. Their order process is easy and professional. They e-mail us to let us know a ship date weeks ahead of time and again when our birds are shipped. Our orders always arrive alive, hearty and well. I highly recommend efowl and plan to continue using them in the future.
