    $40 per dozen shipping included. Available until July 30th. The ducks are laying very well and fertility is excellent!

    Golden Cascade: Developed by Dave Holderread in the 1980's, this is a beautiful dual-purpose breed in the medium weight class of about 6-8 pounds at maturity. Young drakes quickly grow to good harvest weight and dress out around 5.5lbs at 12-16 weeks. The girls are amazing layers of very large white eggs. These gals produce 240+ jumbo large white eggs annually weighing about 3.3 oz - that's a big egg! A wonderful, calm natured breed, they're easy to work with and good foragers when provided with appropriate areas to explore. An excellent homestead duck!

    Penciled Runner: Originating in the Far East it's a very unusual looking ancient breed. A lightweight duck that's slender and stands upright... imagine a bowling pin with legs. They really are beautiful to watch when they synchronize their running as a group. Very active foragers and good layers, they're a little high strung but can be raised tame, and they're active right from the start; these exuberant babies will spring out of your hands eager to explore their new world! Egg yield is about 220 white or blue shelled eggs averaging 2.8 oz. They're a fun duck to raise.

    All photos are property of Moose Manor Farms, LLC and are recent pictures of my birds. Eggs are gathered daily, stored properly, and well packaged for shipping. I ship unwashed eggs no more than 4 days old. I cannot guarantee your hatch rate because I have no control over the incubation conditions with which you use to hatch them. Temperature variance may result in hatch failure or weak babies at hatch! If your thermometer is inaccurate, if you suffer a power failure during incubation, if your incubator is dirty: all these issues are simply beyond my control.

    Im interested in some of the runner eggs. How long will you be selling them for? I have no bator space right now. If you have a list please add me to it. If not, can I just contact you on here when I have some space?

    Hi Aldren,

    Sorry I didn't see your post until now... I think my notification settings are off. I'll have runner eggs available until I release everyone from their breeding yards on June 30th. Most days I gather about 5 eggs from that yard so it shouldn't take long to fill your request and get them in the mail.
