Cayuga Ducks are considered one of the oldest, domesticated, heritage breed of ducks. Cayuga Ducks make for a great utility breed since they can provide both meat and eggs. Their eggs are both white and dark gray to bluish-green. The darker eggs have a dark film on the egg shell and are really not a dark shell. When hatched, Cayuga ducklings are black with an occasional trace of yellow on breasts, have black beaks and feet. Mature ducks have spectacular greenish-black plumage, which makes the adults one of the most beautiful duck breeds. The Cayuga Duck is the most popular exhibition breed in the Medium Weight Duck Class. Cayuga Ducks weigh 6-8 lbs. at 12 to 15 weeks. They are friendly, cold hardy, active foragers and make great show birds.
