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.

Excellent Quality August 7, 2015
Reviewer: Bobbie Jo/Second Chance Farm from Salem, WV United States  
We got 4 and they arrived extremely healthy and active. All 4 are still healthy and growing fast and they are almost a month old. Nice coloring and size as well. Ours are just pets but they would make nice meat birds given their size and health.  I would highly recommend.

Simply the best!! August 4, 2015
Reviewer: Jennifer Holstein from Cameron, SC United States  
I have placed numerous orders with E Fowl over the years.  Once again, they have not disappointed.  I ordered baby chickens through a competitor this past spring, as they were offered a few months earlier.  The quality of birds offered from E-fowl is substantially better.  I will never order babies from anywhere else.

Sickly and carrying Salmonella July 30, 2015
Reviewer: Bernard Addenbrooke  
This is my first time having ducks.  I was very excited to get them and have done the research and bought all the supplies.  Next I order 31 ducks from eFowl and wait.  The morning they show up at the post office I pick them us to my surprise they are week and 5 are dead.  I spent the first few days running around nursing them back to health, chaining their litter, adjusting their heat, giving them fresh food, and fresh water.  One week later I have 15 remaining duck.  To top it off I am at home suffering with Salmonella from these ducks. I rue the day I purchased from eFowl.


Hi Bernard,

Thank you for your review.  Whoa, it sounds like you have a very trying experience.  I'm very sorry that things went so poorly.  Your order arrived overnight, so to experience such high losses on the pekins upon arrival and shortly after suggests that had a very rough trip.  It doesn't look like you contacted us after they arrived per our Live Arrival Guarantee (https://www.efowl.com/Articles.asp?ID=4#live-arrival-guarantee), but after I saw this review I reached out to you for some more information.  We've extended our guarantee for you, and refunded you for the birds you are short on the order.

When we exchanged emails, it sounds like you had a good care setup.  Thank you for following the instructions so closely.  

Finally, salmonella is something that we take very seriously, along with our partner hatcheries.  When I reached out to you requesting additional information regarding the doctor / veterinary report, you refused to provide this.  Please note, this is not something we've had reported in or around your shipping date (or ever for that matter).  Furthermore, the hatchery (Metzer Farms) performs testing on a quarterly basis to maintain a high standard of biosecurity.  If you would like to provide the documentation regarding the salmonella, we can definitely investigate this further.  

When it comes to salmonella, a little precaution goes a long way.  The first line of defense is of course hand washing.  For more tips for safely caring for live poultry, please check out our care guide (https://support.efowl.com/hc/en-us/articles/205445055-eFowl-Waterfowl-Care-Guide ).  Thanks, Austin

Very pleased with the care and handling given to the ducks I ordered. They were delivered very healthy and did not take long to be received after being shipped.
