Productivity includes the performance production and reproduction of female muscovy duck (duck), normally influenced by genetic and environmental factors. The research objective was to study the production, reproduction performance, and the adaptibility of female Muscovy duck based on the region of origin. The research method used an experimental method with a completely randomized design pattern of 4 treatment areas of origin of the duck, namely K1 (Cirebon), K2 (Indramayu), K3 (Majalengka), and K4 (Kuningan) with the treatment being repeated 5 times. Observations were made on 120 females who were mated to 20 males with a sex ratio of 1: 6. Data analysis was performed using ANOVA method with Duncan's advanced test. The results showed that the production, reproduction performance, the adaptibility of the duck were varied (the adaptability of duck highly affected production and reproduction performance). The duck from Kuningan has the best production and reproductive performance at sexual maturity with the criteria of age 167.4 days, body weight 1.718.6 g, first egg weight 61.0 g, food (ransum) consumption of 136 grams, and number of eggs 127. 0 items.
