Cayuga Ducks, sometimes called Black East Indie Ducks, are medium sized ducks (still too large to fly), which have a very unique iridescent green plumage.

Cayugas are one of the most docile breeds. They do not fly and tend to stay close to home. I've found them the perfect breed for home. Their eggs are grey to black and the ducks can be raised for meat. 'Course, we don't eat them. They're too cute.
Cayuga Ducks Lay 100-150 eggs per year. Can not fly. Are calm and can be tamed. Eggs are black early in the season and are white at the end of the season. They will begin to have white feathers as they get older.
