IMPORTANT ORDERING INFORMATION: Wild ducks are shipped on Wednesdays, USPS Priority Mail Express, and will typically arrive in 1-2 days at your local post office. Wild ducks are not available for pickup. Red Crested Pochard Duck wings are pinioned. Shipping cost is $50.00 per pair.

The Red Crested Pochard Duck, Netta rufina, is native to Europe, Asia, and Northern Africa. Males have a handsome, rounded head with bright orange coloring. The male’s body is black on the breast and tail, with brown and buff feathering. The female Red Crested Pochard is mostly brown with a darker brown crown and splashes of white on the face. Their bills are red. 

The Red Crested Pochard is a very social species that will enjoy the company of other diving duck species and therefore can be easily kept in a mixed flock. Pochards build a ground nest near water in dense vegetation. During courtship, the male brings the female food offerings--the Red Crested Pochard is the only duck species with this behavior. Females lay 8-10, pale green eggs that will take 28 days to hatch. In the wild, Red Crested Pochard ducks will eat seeds, roots, and stems of aquatic vegetation. Ducks kept in captivity should be fed a waterfowl diet and offered clumps of earth if not allowed access to foraging ground.

A Red Crested Pochard duck’s average body length is 20-23 inches long and can weigh up to 2 pounds. Wingspan is 33 to 35 inches. As with any wild duck species, they are excellent fliers.
