Acquired: Bred animal myself
Posted Mar 19, 2014
She is a very good mother so far. She loves the water, When I will walk outside in the middle of the night I’ll find her just sitting in the pond and she certainly likes the water more than my Mascovys.
I find that they are good egg layers, she was laying every day until she got broody and it’s so funny watching her run after the bugs in the yard.
She is short and fat, and waddles around ruling my duckyard. She is hatchery quality so not a lot of iridescent feathers, but she is still very pretty and my softest duck. Will tolerate me petting and holding her. She likes chasing flying bugs all across the yard.
If I were to suggest a duck breed for a pet it would be the Cayuga!
