Estaires Duck



Estaires Ducks are a French duck breed, having yellowish-white feathers.

The ducks grow fast, reaching 5 to 5 1/2 pounds (2 to 2.5 kg.)

They are raised primarily for their eggs, of which the ducks are good layers.

The meat from the ducks is considered by most to be of of so-so quality.

History Notes

The Estaires Duck breed originated along the Lys river as it passes through the Estaires département of France. Estaires is in the far north of France on the English channel, and borders on Belgium.


One of the breed's ancestors is probably the Pekin duck.
