Our Irish Outdoor reared Aylesbury ducks are reared on our farm in Carrigcleena, just outside the village of Bweeng, Co Cork. We are a small family business with a passion for the ducks we rear and the finished product that we produce.
Our ducks arrive on our Farm as day old ducklings, their enclosures are warmed to give them maximum protection from the elements, they are given a constant supply of clean water and feed for the first two weeks to give them the perfect start in life. After two weeks, they are then moved on into a bigger area, still inside the barn in the warm as they only have down and no feathers at this stage. From four weeks they have access to a small outdoor area when the weather is warm and dry.
From the age of six weeks when fully feathered they are given full access to fields, to enjoy their natural surroundings during all daylight hours, coming into barns at night and are bedded on fresh clean straw every day, coming in at night is essential to prevent them becoming a midnight feast for various night time prowlers!
During the day if you drive passed our farm, you wil be able to see them wandering around the fields in nearly all weathers, we tend to find they like basking in the sunshine and obviously love the rain, we do find however that they are a little less likely to stay outside in very high wind! Who can blame them?
We believe that our ducks are happy ducks and that happy ducks make tasty ducks. We rear them to full maturity which gives a fuller flavour to the meat they produce. They are fed on a diet containing 80% cereals, we do not give them antibiotics or growth promoters.
