About Rouen Ducks
Rouens are probably the second most popular breed in North America. They are very beautiful and closely resemble wild Mallards in coloration. The original breed was developed in the Normandy area of France and was given the name Rouen after the city of Rouen. They are second to only Pekins and Muscovy in size and are very calm. Some people call Rouens Mallards but that is incorrect as Mallards fly quite easily and Rouens do not. A Rouen is at least three times the weight of a Mallard.
There are two types of Rouen, the show type and the non-show type. We have the non-show type Rouen ducks. The non-show Rouens are good foragers and can produce fine quantities of fertile eggs. The show type Rouens were developed in England and are larger and have a deep keel (a fold of skin that runs from the base of their neck down their abdomen that almost drags on the ground). In addition, the show type Rouen do not lay nearly as many eggs and are less active and fertile.
