Ducks1

Other Animals

We have two breeds of ducks roaming freely around Rock Bottom Ranch. The American Pekin Duck and the Welsh Harlequin. The later is an endangered domestic breed that we are very fortunate to have. With an abundance of riparian area around the property, our ducks (and many other wild bird) are content to call Rock Bottom Ranch home. Both the Pekin and Welsh Harlequin are utilized for pest control and egg production. Duck eggs have about twice the nutritional value as chicken eggs, and more the Omega-3 Fatty Acids. They also are richer in Albumen, which makes them a delight to bake with (super fluffy and rich cakes and pastries!). 

Our pasture-raised, Animal Welfare Approved, non-GMO duck eggs are available for sale at Farmer’s Markets and the Ranch Store. Duck Eggs are $8 a dozen.
