The distinctive markings of the Magpie breed
make it unique among ducks and a beautiful
addition to any flock. The back, tail, and top
of the head are either black or blue, while the
remainder of the bird is white with sharp, clear
distinctions between the white and colored
areas. This Welsh breed was developed in
the 1900s by M.C. Gower Williams and Oliver
Drake as a beautiful yet productive bird. It is believed to have been created from a
mix of Runner, Huttegem, and Termonde ducks. The Magpie first arrived in the United
States in the 1960s, and they are regarded as fi ne egg producers. They are active
foragers as well.
