Can all Duck breeds fly?
Quote:most domesticated breeds cannot fly. They can flutter around a bit and get a few feet off the ground. Smaller breeds like calls can fly and muscovies can fly.
My mallard flies, but my swedes and pekins and khakis all have big fat bottoms, and can't.
Not all can...
My Khaki Campbell can fly like a Mallard,my Rouen....a few feet, my Pekin.....well, he'd have to have wings the size of a Cessna to get his fat butt off the ground.
thanks for all the posts
I had my Crackers(Khaki Campbell) fly off, looking for a woman I think, and he never came home
Now I'm looking for 1 or 2 breeds that will not fyl off on me, what about a the Blue Swedish, Buff Duck(Orpington) and the Cayuga???
i have blue swedish and they have almost the same build as a pekin. she is too heavy to get her big butt off the ground!! lol
I have Blue Swedish and Cayuga (2 hens of each), and while my Blue Swedish girls are a bit more "fluffy" than the Cayugas, not a one of the four could fly any more than I could.
So at least in my experience, you'd certainly be safe with either of those breeds staying put.
miniature silver Appleyard ducks can fly very well.
