Buff Ducks

Hawthorn Hill Poultry has expanded to waterfowl! 

It had been many years since having ducks on the farm and I was feeling that it was time to dive back in.  I did a little research on breeds, and it wasn't hard to make my decision.  I wanted a medium-weight breed that would be hardy, lay well and be easy to manage.  And, of course, they must be attractive.   It had to be Buff Ducks (historically called Buff Orpington Ducks).

These beautiful ducks are everything I was hoping for and more!  They seem to have a carefree, joyful approach to life that is hard to fault.
