Like all of our poultry, we began by raising flocks of heritage breed ducks including 'Saxony', 'Silver and White Appleyard', and 'Rouen', with mixed success. Our goal was to have all of the pieces: heritage breed, relatively calm demeanor, and delicious flavor.
We have since let go of raising heritage ducks and raise a Pekin cross. The reasonings behind this would warrant an entire essay, but factors like access to processors, trickiness of waterfowl feathers and customer demand for larger duck breasts are just some.
