Cayuga ducks are an amazing bird if you want egg layers who will go broody and a good meat bird as well. Their eggs are a lovely green color and have exceptionally good taste. Their meat is dark and stays tender even after several years of laying. They are friendly and quite sociable like most ducks and will grow attached to their people after several months. The only thing that makes them less than stellar meat birds is the dark color of their plumage. It makes plucking a clean bird into a long and tedious process.
