Cayugas are a really sweet, beautiful and friendly natured duck to own. Their black feathers have a beautiful iridescent green gloss and they look stunning.
The Cayuga is a hardy breed and both drake and hen have good temperament and are quiet. For those who want to keep ducks, but live close to others that make keeping Call Ducks impractical because of the loud quack, the Cayuga duck may be a good alternative. The males are often mute.
Our Cayuga drake won “Highly Commended” in the British Waterfowl Association, Champion Waterfowl 2020.
Cayuga ducks are on the Rare Breed Survival Trust Watchlist.
Eggs: 100-150 per year, green tinted.
Conservation Status: Threatened
