    Sold as straight run only for pick up only in Pomfret, Maryland (Washington DC area).

    I have 3 of these adorable ducklings available. Hatched 6/7 by Holderread. Happy and hale, they're well started and I can just see the beginnings of feathering.

    The Cayuga, to this day, is recognized as one of the hardiest of the domestic ducks and are easily tamed if hand-raised. They tolerate the harsh winters of the northeast and can produce many offspring. The Cayuga averages 7-8 lbs. and has the ability to obtain much of its diet from foraging, when given appropriate areas to explore for food.

    This duck is listed as threatened by the American Livestock Conservancy. The Cayuga is in a good position to rapidly increase in number with little effort. Only a few additional breeders are needed to help further secure its future.
