Cayuga ducks are a threatened breed, they are generally quite calm and easy going.
These beautiful, iridescent, green feathered ducks are great for their egg production, show quality, and their ability to make great pets their quiet quack makes them an excellent choice for a backyard duck.
Cayuga eggs can be quite impressive in appearance, as a black colour is transferred to the shells, but this is only a superficial layer and is easily wiped off. The degree of black colouration varies throughout the laying season – the eggs start darker early in the laying season and fade as the season goes on, when you wipe off the black cuticle it reveals a green egg. Birds that lay darker eggs are highly desired.
