The Ancona duck was developed in Great Britain during the early twentieth
century. They mature out on the average to about six to six and a half pounds
and are a stocky built duck. There is no set design to their broken color
pattern. The Ancona Ducks are an excellent layer, a hardy all-purpose duck that grows
relatively quickly. Typically they have moderately calm temperaments and make
good yard ducks as they tend to stay closer to the home. They typically do not
fly and make good backyard ducks.
