Spice up your backyard farm with Valley Hatchery’s Ancona Ducklings, the spotty stars of the duck world! These uniquely patterned beauties come dressed in their own black and white speckled attire, making them the trendsetters of the poultry world. Their oval heads and slightly concave bills add to their quirky charm, while their yellow bills with black or dark green splotches give them an air of mystery.
But don’t let their striking looks fool you – these ducks are more than just pretty feathers. Ancona Ducks are egg-laying champions, consistently delivering 150-190 large to extra-large eggs annually in shades of white, cream, or the occasional blue. They might not have the American Poultry Association’s seal of approval yet, but they’re making waves with their robust health and top-notch foraging skills.
These birds are not just about looks and eggs. They’re also backyard farmers’ dream companions, thanks to their calm nature and broodiness – perfect for those who want to expand their flock the natural way. And let’s talk size: the males strut around at a solid 8lbs, while the females are not far behind at about 7lbs.
In a nutshell, the Ancona Duck from Valley Hatchery is the perfect blend of beauty, productivity, and adaptability. Whether you’re in it for the egg bonanza, the exhibition potential, or just to add some pizzazz to your paddock, these ducklings are ready to rock your world.
