Developed in New York, USA from two black ducks a man found in his pond. This is the main idea, but there are several different theories.
- Breed Colors/Varieties:
- Black with a Green shine. Blue/Splash are Rare
- Breed Size:
- Large Fowl

Pros - A tad distrusting, but once you earn it... it’s amazing! My Cayuga is the most calm bird. When our other male tried to pick a fight, he just leaves! He’s very gentle when eating out of my hand, whereas my other ducks (Pekins) leave red marks!
Cons - They are skittish, and it may take a while to gain any trust!
Pros - They are quite, unusual, friendly, and their egg color is amazing!
We love our Cayuga pair...They are so unique and unusual that everyone who visits wants one. They have soft voices, and hilarious attitudes. They are also very entertaining, especially when in water.biggbooboo likes this.
"Quiet & Friendly"
Pros - Quiet, Friendly
Cons - I dont have any rn
They only quack when they want food or if one gets isolated from the flock, other than that they are very quiet ducks. I raised mine from ducklings and trained them to eat from my hand so they are pretty friendly and easy to catch. When I was looking at different duck breeds I considered Cayuga and Ancona and I'm glad I chose Cayuga. Mine really are the stereotypical Cayugas, Calm and Quiet. I hope this review will help people with their decision of duck breed(s).
