Muscovy ducks originated from the wild Muscovy found throughout Central and South America, making it a completely different species than all other domestic breeds. It is the heaviest breed of recognized duck breed, with males frequently being twice the size of females. Despite their large size, they are very capable fliers, particularly the lighter weight females. They are also prone to roosting and perching on objects like chickens. Perhaps their most unique feature is their caruncled face, like that of a turkey. Despite their exotic appearance, they make excellent utility birds. The breed has always been a prized meat bird and produces a large, well-muscled carcass in 12-14-weeks. They are also excellent foragers, and the females make excellent natural mothers. {{br}} Purpose: Meat Production: 150 Large White Eggs Eggs/Year Temperament: Calm, Active Mature Weight: 6-12 lbs.

Dark Campbells are cousins to the Khaki Campbell. They have darker feathers than the Khaki Campbell with the drakes having beetlegreen heads, necks, and backs with light brown bodies. Females have dark brown plumage and are a little bit lighter over their shoulders. Campbells are very adaptable to a wide variety of climates. They make great foragers and are good layers but are not known to go broody. These ducks will make a great addition to your flock!

Blue, Black, Silver Swedish Duck

Currently Unavailable
 

Blue, Black, and Silver Swedish ducks are very hardy, foragers, and do well free-ranging. They were first imported to the U.S. in the late 1800s. They are slow to mature but make a good meat duck, and a moderate egg layer, and do not do well in confinement. Sometimes they are quite noisy with their loud yelling type quack.
