C - R Ducks
Who is C-R Duck? "C" stands for Casey and "R" stands for Rico and is the combined team of Casey Vandermeer and Rico Sebastianelli. The partnership was formed after we bought and raised ducks together. We only showed ducks under C-R Ducks at first but then decided to show everything under the C-R Ducks banner.
We have won many awards and have been recognized for our efforts during our years of showing. Rico was honored by the APA for his many years of work with the APA and his support to the hobby and organization. Casey was also honored by the Canadian APA for his many years of showing and supporting the APA.
We have been awarded Grand Masters Exhibitors Awards by the American Poultry Association for the Varieties:
Black Cochin Bantam
White Call Ducks
Black Old Game Game Bantams
Casey lives in the Sherwood Park, Alberta area for over 30 years. Casey also raises pigeons and also is a pigeon judge. Casey main breeds of pigeon are Fantails and Norwich Croppers. Most of the waterfowl is bread and raised at Casey's place.
Rico lives in the Bon Accord, Alberta area for over 36 years. During those years I has raised 100's of different breeds of large and bantams chickens. I also have raised Rouen and Call ducks along with types of Turkeys. After many years trying different types of chicken breeds I certainly had my favorite breeds. Black Cochin Bantams have always been on the farm since the beginning and is my favorite breed. I have also took a real liking for the Old English Game Bantams.

New Hampshere Bantams
Old English Games in Black and Black Breast Red
