Valley Hatchery is proud to offer Rouen Ducklings, a beautiful and unique breed of domesticated duck that is perfect for decoration, exhibition, or as a general purpose breed. Despite being known for their stunning appearance, Rouen Ducks are also excellent for meat production, as they are a heavyweight breed. While they are not prolific egg layers, they do produce a good number of large to extra-large blue/green to tinted eggs each year. With docile and friendly personalities, Rouen Ducks make great pets and are well-suited for any backyard or farm. With drakes weighing in at around 7lbs and hens at 5lbs, these ducks are a robust and hardy breed that originated in France. Rouen Ducks have been recognized by the American Poultry Association, making them a top choice for exhibition and showing. In addition, these ducks are known to go broody, making them excellent mothers. If you’re looking to add some beauty and versatility to your flock, consider hatching some Rouen Ducklings from Valley Hatchery.
