These attractive ducks bear the name of the famous French city they came from originally. Similar to the Wild Mallard in color, the males have a lustrous green head and neck, a rich purplish brown chest, and steel gray penciling on the upper body. The females are mahogany brown with fine penciling of greenish black or brown. Males have a fall weight of 8 to 9 pounds and females are 6 to 7 pounds.

These are the pair we got from you guys and we loved them so much, we decided to incubate more. We ended up with another pair just the same as parents. They provided us with endless entertainment. And, the love to eat stockings! We will definitely have the guys again when we have another place with room. BTW, the kiddie pool was all they needed for water, just clean it daily. Thanx MMcM, for you beautiful, healthy, lovely birds. Always healthy and only 1 sex mistake out of about 80 birds.
We call our Rouens "dugs" because they are so friendly and behave like little dogs - following us around, running to meet me at night when I get home. They are a sheer joy!
Their names are Esme' and Emmett.
We received a Rouen duck as part of our Homesteader's Delight package in April 2011. She has been a wonderful bird that started laying after about 6 months. The eggs are beautiful inside and out and are delicious. She free ranges around our pond and lays an egg almost every night.
I received my Rouen duck eggs the day before Easter 2011 and on May 21 and they are healthy and happy ducklings. I have never owned ducks before, but I am so glad that I have them. I don't know how I could ever live without them now. They are so fun to watch. I plan on getting some every year now.
Thanks to McMurray Hatchery, I now have my first batch of ducks and the Rouen ducks were my choice. Their personalities are so delightful to be around and they make great insect exterminators! Much appreciation to the staff at McMurray Hatchery; they'll always have my business.
We received our rouen ducks last year. They are personable and humorous--not to mention, being handy at reducing the bug population. They sleep with our 4 border collies and cat. Our home would not be the same without them. They are a permanent part of our landscape!
I bought four ducklings in June. I am very happy with how sweet and lovable these ducks are. They have never been sick, hurt, or mean. They are a great size and are just nice birds. I would never trade these sweet hearts for anything. Also I am excited for the hopeful hatching of babies in the spring.
I have Rouen ducks.When I got them in April, I enjoyed seeing them grow up. They really grow fast and they started laying eggs on October 11,2003. They are very beautiful when they grow their feathers. I would tell everyone to get their birds from Murry McMurry Hatchery!!!!!
