Hatching Eggs: Cayuga Duck
|Shipping Week||Availability||Other Breeds Available|
The Cayuga Duck is a testament to nature's beauty and charm. Whether you're an experienced duck enthusiast or just starting your journey with waterfowl, this magnificent duck breed will make a great addition to your flock.
Mesmerizing Iridescent Black Feathers: The Cayuga Duck is famous for its stunning, iridescent black plumage, which glistens with hints of green and purple in the sunlight. This unique coloring sets the Cayuga apart, making it a living work of art in your backyard or pond. After several years, Cayugas turn almost all white, and their black legs become orangish as they age. (See photos.)
Egg Color and Production: Cayuga duck eggs have black or dark gray shells toward the beginning of the season. The eggs will then start to lighten in color and produce light gray, blue, green, or even white eggs at season end.
Expert Hatching Tip: Duck Eggs should be set 1 week after chicken eggs for the same hatch dates if combined in an incubator.

Please contact us within 48 hours of receiving the damaged eggs to report the issue and provide photos of the damage.
New! Hatch Rate Guarantee
We want every duck keeper to experience the joys of hatching eggs, but realize that the uncertainty can be a challenge. My Pet Chicken is excited to offer an innovative and unmatched Hatch Rate Guarantee, giving you the confidence to hatch eggs at home! Orders of 12 eggs or less experiencing a 25% or lower hatch rate, qualify for a full complimentary reshipment. To receive your reshipment, contact us within 6 weeks of the ship date. We'll ask a few questions and offer some helpful advice, and place a reshipment order for the next available date of your selected breeds.
Orders greater than 12 eggs with a hatch rate of 8% or less qualify for 50% off a replacement order.
Can I choose which day my eggs will arrive?
When you place your order, you can choose your preferred week of shipment. Your order may ship anytime that week, Monday through Saturday, depending on the hens' cooperation. Should there be an issue with your order, we will attempt to contact you.
Will the post office deliver the eggs to my door?
Shipping labels on our hatching egg boxes indicate that the post office should "CALL ON ARRIVAL." This reduces the handling and extremes of temperature the eggs experience en route to you and can ultimately increase the viability of your eggs. However, this information is often not seen by the carrier, and eggs are delivered to the physical shipping address on the label anyway.
If it is imperative that the eggs not be delivered directly to your shipping address, you can change the ship-to address on your order to the address of your post office of choice, attn: 'your name.' If you choose to do this, make sure to include a valid phone number so the post office can reach you when the box arrives.
