They are lovely and what a beautiful place.
Beautiful production rouens
Thank you everybody for all the nice comments.
Buff Goose Guy, what are "production Rouens"? These where a gift from a friend of my daughter. Her Khakis did not get along with them. I don't really know much about ducks other than I just love those guys; they have so much personality.
Standard rouens are larger basicly, fat.
Production rouens are thinner and used to lay more eggs, and some people use them to breed standard rouens since they have a hard time mateing without water
Thanks for the heads up. How can you tell that mine are the production type if size is the only difference?
Because it's such a big size difference that's the whole thing that makes them production rouens. Like even if you made your ducks fat ( which please don't do ) they wouldn't be the right kind of body type to be considered standard rouens.
Great, I was hoping we'd get a lot of eggs and I certainly would never consider eating them.
They are Guinness and Rouen, we did not change their names. Ro was bred by one of the Khakis and was a very good mother to her 10 ducklings. She started laying again, one egg a day, when the ducklings were about a month or so old. That's when my daughter's friend brought the pair to us. She hasn't laid since. I think it was a big shock to lose her babies, her friends, her home all at once. I hope she starts laying again in the spring.
