We imported our stock direct from the holderread farm in the US who is reputed to have outstanding waterfowl and geese. Our recent import brought us some golden Cascade's and other colors. The breed was intended for an ultimate quick growing dual purpose duck that displays beautiful qualities in its plumage. This medium breed duck has been around Since the early 80's. The ducks can go broody. They lay large white eggs that weight up to 75 grams. They cannot fly and make an excellent homestead duck.
