The Cayuga takes its name from Lake Cayuga, New York which makes it one of the few duck breeds with an United States origin. The Cayuga is a quiet duck that is very hardy and is known primarily for its brilliant “beetle” green plumage. The hens, which weigh 5 to 6 pounds, lay a light blue or gray egg and the males grow to between 6 and 7 pounds. Ducklings have black feet and bills, black down, and have an occasional trace of yellow on their breast.

I ordered a female Cayuga from you 10 years ago, and she is still doing great! Thanks for bringing Bettie into my life.
Excellent packaging and shipping. The ducklings arrived in good health, and I could hear them pipping when I walked into the door of the PO to pick them up.
They are now residing in a brooder with a Sussex chick with everyone trying to figure out who the others are.
Thanks for great service.
We loved our ducks but ended up getting rid of them because they ARE NOT QUIET. That was the main reason we got them. My Pekin is very quiet, so he stayed.
I have a male and a female Cayuga. My female Kiwi makes our very broody and mean Rhode Island Red hatch her eggs (we got our chicken for free from a local farmer).Over all a great duck!!!!!
We are so in love with our Cayugas (where I grew up!!) We ordered 45 chicks and 10 ducklings including 4 Blue Swedish. One little Cayuga didn't make it, but he's at peace with our black lab that always wanted a duckie of his own. This has been such a great experience this has been so far - great customer service and beautiful birds!
I ordered 4 ducklings and they all arrived safe
and sound. They are so lively and love to run and
jump. I bought 1 male Cayuga, 1 male Black Swedish, 1 female Peking and 1 female Khaki. the
Swedish and the Khaki are the most jumpist. We
are very pleased.
I ordered two Cayuga ducklings in the spring, and they have since grown into the most beautiful, healthy, and happy ducks I've ever seen. I constantly get compliments on them. I would never order ducks or any poultry from anywhere else. Thank you!
We love our Cayugas! They came healthy & have stayed that way (we haven't lost any)! They are beautiful, get along with the chickens, and are so much fun to watch play! Can't wait for their eggs!
The ducks arrived in great condition and were eager to eat and drink. Very beautiful animals and the transport package kept them very safe. Will recommend McMurray for anyone wishing to order birds.
I just received the Cayuga ducks. All arrived in great shape and ready to drink some water. I am looking forward to watching them grow.
I have had my Cayuga ducks for two years. They are very friendly, and they greet me when I get home and as I go out the door. I love to watch them splash in their pool and run around the yard.
We received our 16 Cayuga ducklings on March 2nd. Our family's first experience with ducks. All 16 arrived in great shape and continued to stay healthy for 10 weeks in a brooding house. Released the ducks 3 days ago in our pond. They are in duck heaven. Easy to take care of, our sons have had a ball, and the Cayugas are beautiful with their blue and green highlights. We are hooked!
