Cayuga Duck Domestic Ducks

Cayuga ducks are a threatened breed. These beautiful, iridescent, green feathered ducks are great for their flavourful meat, egg production, show quality, and their ability to make great pets.

Their medium size (6-8 lbs.) and quiet quack make them an excellent choice for a backyard duck. Cayugas appear black until the light hits them, then they show their beautiful green colour. Their bills, shanks and feet are usually black. As Cayugas age they start to get white feathers, which can eventually take the place of most of their coloured feathers, and their shanks and feet may take on an orange hue.

Well-kept Cayugas produce between 100 and 150 eggs per year. The first eggs of the season are black and lighten to grey, blue, green and even white as the season goes on. Cayugas are hardy and can produce a large quantity of offspring despite cold temperatures. Unlike most duck breeds, Cayugas will brood their own eggs which hatch in 28 days. Cayugas have a quiet, docile temperament. When they are hand raised, they make wonderful, tame pets. With quality care, they live 8 to 12 years. Cayugas are a welcome, colourful addition to any backyard flock.
