Like all Widgeons these birds like to graze and would prefer an enclosure with lots of grass.
American Widgeons are not a particularly aggressive species, although pairs may act somewhat aggressive during breeding season, they are still quite suitable for the mixed collection.
Breeding season begins in the spring, clutches consist of 7-9 eggs and are incubated for about 23-25 days. The ducklings are easy to raise and present no special concerns.
We currently keep and raise the Blonde color mutation of the American Widgeon which is a lighter version of the original color. We have been working with this color since 2012. At the time of this writing this color mutation is still quite rare and we do not raise very many of these birds.
