Rouen ducks are the basic coloration of the Mallards only larger and do not fly more than 100 feet. They are a French breed that is used both for eggs and meat and admitted into the American Standard of Perfection in 1874. A great water fowl for the ranch pond, they make good backyard ducks and are good for insect control. The Rouen duck is calm, sociable and very entertaining as pets. The Rouen duck is a slower grower than the Pekin. They also make good show ducks.

We can not ship ducks to Hawaii.

    Fantastic Ducks!

    I ordered 8 hens and 1 drake in the Rouen Breed. I was worried when the estimated arrival date was 4 days away. I was afraid I’d have some fatalities….but the birds actually got here in 2 days! They were gorgeous birds….extremely healthy and ready to get out of the box. They were jumping around and excited. They settled in very quickly and are nice and quiet now and very happy campers. This is my favorite breed of ducks because they are much quieter than most and extremely gentle! Thank You!!!!!

    Two birds died in shipment. But I was overstocked by two, so that worked out perfectly. The Rouens are full-grown now and they are beautiful.

    Pleasantly surprised!

    We received two hens in our surprise box in early June, now at just 6 months old both hens are laying almost every day! I never expected them to lay so consistently. I would highly recommend these ducks to anyone interested in laying ducks.

    Cackle Hatchery

    My youngest daughter wanted some of those “green headed quackers” for our farm so we ordered some from Cackle. I can not express how pleased I am with the chicks. The came in less than a week from ordering, all were alive, there was even an extra one which really excited my daughter! “We got a BONUS QUACKER Dad!” Thank you so much for helping me make her dream of having ducks come true. I’m sure they will lover living on our farm. We’ll be doing business with Cackle again in the future.

    Rouen hens are wonderful!

    Our Rouen hen is my favorite! She has a sweet demeanor and is the most sociable of all our hen breeds. Super pretty and calm as well. I plan to buy more.

    Good ducklings, packaging issues

    Just received my Rouen ducklings this morning from the post office. They are very sweet. Prompt delivery. My only complaint is that two of the ducklings had the packing tape severely wrapped in one of their wings and now have gimpy wings and one has a wound on the end of it, which has caused the male duckling to pick on it.

    I will recommend cackle hatchery to everyone

    Just got my ducks this morning. I’m very happy with your promt mailing and the post office let me know as soon as they were in. They arrived healthy and as soon as i opened the top of the box they started trying to jump out. I wil be buying from cackle hatchery in the very near future.
