The Golden Cascade was developed by
Dave Holderread of Oregon. The purpose of
this breed was to be able to cross a Golden
Cascade drake on almost any female of
another breed and the resulting offspring
would be color-sexable. Dave was eventually
successful in producing a drake that would
do just that. In addition to their sex-linked
trait color, Golden Cascades are also highly productive layers of large white eggs and
would impart this trait on their offspring as well. As a purebred the Golden Cascade
still makes a wonderful general-purpose duck. The males have a brilliant green head,
claret breast, and grayish/white body. The females are a rich golden-brown color with
varying amounts of cream markings on the face and throat.
APPROX. 220 LARGE EGGS/YEAR | EGG COLOR: WHITE | MATURE WT: 6-7 LBS.
