We have a mature pair and are waiting for their first clutch this spring!
Rouens are a french duck breed, modeled after mallards, but they are bigger. Our rouens are quiet and shy ducks, mostly keeping together. Their characteristic calls are always a welcome sound when I go into the coop to feed.
Our rouens are currently staying in the coop, however we will be separating them as the weather warms, in a large enclosed outdoor pen, to prevent them cross breeding with our Muscovy. Rouens love to swim and splash in the water, like most ducks they can be quite messy.
BBB strives to produce a rouen duck that is large enough to roast, and quick to grow on pasture.
