Mcmurray Hatchery Flying Mallard Ducks

The Mallard small, flying duck. They are very similar in coloring to the Rouen duck, but are much smaller (weighing just 2-2.5 pounds). Mallards will start to fly for short spurts at 10-12 weeks, and will be flying well by 16 weeks. It is really a treat to see these brightly colored ducks flying about. 

When raised for meat production, Mallards have a more gamey taste than other domestic duck breeds. Mallard hens are excellent mothers and will raise one or two broods of ducklings a year.

LEG BANDS - If your birds were sexed and identified with colored bands, remove the bands upon arrival.

A permit is not needed to own or sell Mallard ducklings. All domestically hatched Mallard ducklings are required to be identified by U.S. Fish and Wildlife. This is done by removing a back toe at the time of hatch — an method that is accepted by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife. 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 taken from the wild.
