ABOUT OUR DUCKS:
Our breeding stock is originally from Holderreads' Waterfowl Farm & Preservation Center, but have been removed long enough that they are a separate line. We have recently added lines from several other breeders to diversify our flock. We selectively breed for medium weight and body type that lays consistently with well-marked individuals. We are members of the Livestock Conservancy who considers these ducks "critically endangered".
Our birds are raised outside on pasture to allow for nature behavior and increased foraging. In the growing season, very little supplemental feed is needed. Our line is especially adapted to our hot, humid, ever-changing southeastern weather! The average # of eggs per hen is 260-280.
We produce all possible colors in our flock, including Lavender, Silver, Lilac, and the more typical Black, Chocolate, and Blue.
