    Ducks

    ducks

    Like our chickens many of our Ducks are bred on our school hatch and brood scheme. You will see them frolicking around the farm yard and diving into the pond in the field.

    Indian runners

    Although their name suggests otherwise, they are native to Malaysia. They are a light weight with a upright pose and are bred in many colours, including, white, black, grey, tan and blue. They are quiet and known for their very good egg laying production (up to 365 per year, or one per day), but don’t take care of their eggs. These ducks stand upright like humans and stand up to 14” tall.

    Muscovy Ducks

    The Muscovy duck is a large perching duck which is native to Mexico and South America.

    This species normally inhabits forested swamps, lakes and streams, and often roosts in trees at night. The wild Muscovy duck is all-dark apart from the white in the wings, with long talons on its feet and a wide flat tail.

    The male is 86cm long and weighs 3kg, much larger than the 64cm long, 1.3kg female. His most distinctive features are a bare red face. The drake has a dry hissing call, and the hen a quiet trilling coo.
