IMPORTANT ORDERING INFORMATION: Eggs are collected fresh from our breeding flock and shipped by USPS Priority Mail. Hatching Eggs are labeled with breed code to help with ID during incubation. Eggs can be shipped year-round, but please use your own discretion when ordering during extreme weather. We guarantee that your eggs will arrive unbroken, but will not guarantee your hatching success because of the many variables with shipping, incubating, and hatching. Breakage must be reported upon arrival.
The golden layer duck, developed for increased egg production, is a moderately sized duck with a docile disposition. The adult females will have varying shades of brown with a white patch on their chest. Males will present with two color variations. They may be similar to a Rouen in color and pattern or like a female Golden Layer but with black feathers. This breed is a hybrid and first-generation ducklings will be auto-sexing with the males presenting with black tint while females will have brown shading. Subsequent offspring will not be auto-sexed. Golden Layer ducklings take 28 days to hatch.
