Rouen’s are a meat breed that came from France and are bred mostly for decoration or general purpose. They resemble a Mallard in appearance but are brighter and larger. They were first bred in France but did not become the bird we know today until they reached England and were refined in the 1800s. They weigh 6-8 pounds and lay 35-125 eggs a year.
Rouen ducks are sold as day old ducklings or juvenile/mature ducks.
Ducklings are sold straight run (unsexed). The minimum order for ducklings being shipped is 4, this number can be made by combining any breeds of ducklings or goslings.
Hatch dates are on Tuesdays. Ducklings ordered for pickup can be picked up between the Wednesday to Saturday following the hatch. We are not able to allow pickups on the actual hatch date. You will be emailed prior to the hatch to schedule a pickup appointment. An appointment must be made to ensure we will be available to help you.
