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.

Not Available

Limited Availability (<10 birds)

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.

Our prices here at the farm for adult, fully colored, fully flying birds are as follows: For 1-9, the price is $18.25 per bird; 10-49 is $17.00, and for 50 or more, the price is $15.25 per bird.

A permit is not needed to own or sell Mallard ducklings. All domestically hatched Mallard ducklings are required to be identified by US Fish and Wildlife. Our method is to remove a back toe when they hatch. This is an acceptable method by the US Fish and Wildlife and you do not need to do any other marking of our Mallards at any time. This is to show, if you were ever inspected, that the birds were domestically hatched and not "kidnapped" out of a local marsh.


Customer Reviews of Mallard Ducks

December 29, 2020 | Review

I really like my little mallard drake from Metzer. I'm sure he is able to fly, but has never left the paddock where the rest of the flock is bound by their massive weight.

April 29, 2021 | One died within hours of arrival, one very healthy

One baby duck died within hours of arrival. I know that is the risk of shipping live animals, but it was still hard. The other is healthy and whistling, so I'm happy about that.
