Saxony Duck

Scientific name: Anas platyrhynchos domesticus

Country / Place of origin: Germany

History: The Saxony Duck is a rare breed and would have been lost if it wasn't for two breeders who took an interest in saving them. Saxony Ducks were developed in Germany in the early 1900’s. After most were lost during WW II, Albert Franz worked to save the breed. More recently Dave Holderread in the U.S. worked to establish the Saxony breed in the United States with success. They were accepted into American Poultry Association (APA) in 2000.
