canard d'Estaires

[French] plural canards d'Estaires

The canard d'Estaires is a very localised breed of duck, now rare, from Estaires in Nord-Pas-de-Calais, about 11 kilometres west of Armentières. Probably descended from the Pekin duck. It lives on the Lys river. It is a white duck weighing 2-2.5 kg. Good layer but not really as fine-fleshed as the Bourbourg.
