are probably the second most popular breed in North America. They are very beautiful and closely resemble wild Mallards in coloration. The original breed was developed in the Normandy area of France and was given the name Rouen after the city of Rouen. They are second to only Pekins and Muscovy in size and are said to have the most flavorful meat. We have sold our
in the past to growers that have a very specialized meat market. The Rouen is very calm and has a fairly lean carcass. Some people call Rouens Mallards but that is incorrect as Mallards fly quite easily and Rouens do not. A Rouen is at least three times the weight of a Mallard. There are two types of
, the show type and the non-show type. We have the non-show type Rouen ducks. The nonshow
are good foragers and can produce fine quantities of fertile eggs. The show type
were developed in England and are larger and have a deep keel (a fold of skin that runs from the base of their neck down their abdomen that almost drags on the ground). In addition, the show type
do not lay nearly as many eggs and are less active and fertile.
I ordered three Rouen ducklings last year and they were very cute and fun to have around. I entered two of them in the county fair as my FFA project, and they placed Best In Class for the market division. These are some quality ducks! However, I unexpectedly received an extra duck with my shipment. The only problem with this was that the "back-up" duck was not sexed like the others. Overall great ducks though.

The cutest ducks ever!
We ordered a couple of Rouen ducklings. They were shipped fast and came well packaged. This was our first time ordering anything like this and the experience was great. Our ducklings are the cutest little things ever. I never thought ducks could be pets. I am so in love with our new additions to the family. They are so lovable and want to be with us all the time. We live on a lake and have wild ducks and these guys will still stay with us. I will order again from here. Thanks so much!
