Mallards are native to most countries in the Northern Hemispheres. It is thought that all domestic ducks except Muscovy are derived from the wild Mallard, or "Greenhead" as some call them. They are a small, flying duck that is hunted widely. Our Mallards retain this excellent flying ability.
In addition, they do an excellent job of hatching and raising one or two broods of ducklings a year. Mallards start to fly for short spurts at 10-12 weeks and
are flying very well by 16 weeks. It is also at about 14-16 weeks that the males get their beautiful coloring - prior to that both the males and females are similarly colored in shades of brown.
We have sold our ducklings for pets, but also for dog training and hunting preserves. We do not ship our started or adult birds through the mail - only the day old ducklings which are hatched every week of the year. If you are close enough to pick them up, or have us deliver them, we can raise our Mallards for your dog trials or hunting preserve.
