Goofy ducks

A review on: Pekin
Frindizzle

Pros: Silly, Sweet, good for cleaning up parasites in the goat pen.

Cons: A bit dumb, messy.

We have one Pekin, Daisy. She lives in the goat pen with our other duck, a mallard. He is more shy while Daisy will come up and eat out of your hand. We do not need to clean the goat area anymore, for they eat all the goat poop. They clean all the parasites. Daisy is messy, quirting grain everywhere but she always cleans it up. She is a sweet duck, so I would recommend Pekin's to anyone who...

“ I've had Anconas for over a year now, after admiring them for awhile before then. I LOVE them. My two hens are fantastic egg-layers. Since they started laying early this spring, they hardly ever miss a day (except for my hen who went broody - she took a few weeks off during incubation, and then about 1-1/2 weeks after they hatched she is back at it!). They are also quite calm and friendly,...” --wordgirl

Call Duck

Call Duck

“   I love call ducks!  They are the ideal duck for persons with not much room for bigger ducks.  To those close to neighbors, I suggest a pen of males as the hens are vocal.   These ducks are quick and efficient insect and worm eradicaters.  Provide them with a kiddie pool for hours of amusement.  With one wing clipped, they won't fly off.  They are...” --NajmoNests
