They are small, growing to only 2.75 to 3.8 pounds (1 ¼ kg to 1 ¾ kg.)
The breed is considered rare (as of 2011.)
The ducks are considered quite good eating.
Vouillé Ducks originated in the Vouillé area of the Poitevin marshes in the Vendée area of France, on the Atlantic coast.
The breed almost disappeared but was kept alive because it was also useful as a calling duck for hunting.
