The Buff Duck, or Buff Orpington Duck (yes, really — just like the chicken!) was developed by the William Cook family who lived in the Orpington area of Kent, England in the early 1900s. It entered the U.S. in 1908. To this day it remains a very beautiful and popular breed.

The female is all buff and the male has a buff body and seal brown head. The female has a brownish orange bill with a dark bean and the male has a yellow bill. They have brown eyes with a blue pupil and they have orange yellow shanks and feet.

The Buff has a calm disposition and is a good forager. They weigh 5-6.25 lbs and lay between 130-180 large (80-90 grams) white or tinted eggs per year. Though the Buff breeds true (their progeny is the same color), they originated from a variety of breeds: Runners, Aylesburys, Rouens, and Cayugas.

Our ducks will fully integrate with all the other breeds that we offer. If you want purebred ducklings hatching from your ducks, make sure you separate your ducks by breed during the mating season. Or you can let your ducks cross and see what different shapes and colors you will get with their ducklings.

* You'll get the best shipping price if you order more than 15 waterfowl babies, due to the special care with which small orders must be packaged. The smallest orders of 2-9 ducklings will double or even triple your shipping rate, whereas small orders of 10-15 will add in the neighborhood of 50% more to your price (depending on your distance from our hatchery).

* Ducklings and goslings have special needs which are different from those of baby chicks. Read more, here

* Breed photos may not be representative of the parent breeding stock. In some cases our photos are of winning exhibition lines of poultry. Unless noted otherwise, we do not source from exhibition lines.
