Ancona Ducks

$10.30

Ancona Ducks are an extremely hardy, adaptable, and self-sufficient breed. They are excellent foragers and will make very quick work of reducing slug populations.  These spotted ducks all look different with different patterns of spots, so it makes identifying individuals in your flock easy.  Ancona flocks make strong social bonds. There is a high percentage of female-led hierarchy in Ancona duck flocks. This usually means less stress during mating season and more active foraging compared with other duck breeds. In general, the social hierarchy of the flock is not demanding or stressful to flock members.  They make good mothers and are a good backyard choice of duck. They are calm and typically don’t wander as long as forage is available.  They are also sensible, smart, and savvy ducks, which make them careful and less vulnerable than many other breeds of duck. They do not fly.

Anconas Ducks are a great dual-purpose duck.  They are excellent layers of jumbo-sized eggs.  The eggs are whitish cream, and some have a greenish tint.  They boast a long egg production period and will lay 210 – 280 eggs yearly.  Although medium size, their meat is flavorful and of high quality.
