 Red Crested Pochard                          Order Now     for Fall 2024

 Native to Europe Red Crested Pochard do not require a permit to keep in Canada. They are a larger duck that can be kept with more aggressive species. We are currently keeping them with Mandarins. They tolerate each other and do not compete for nesting sites.

    Usually they will color and breed in their second year. Occasionally females may lay one or two eggs in their first. It is very difficult to find good stock in Canada.  We have purchased new stock all from European lines. In 2015 one female laid her clutch in a ground box, and raised her own young.
