Pros: awesome personality, doesn't need much food

Cons: what

   I LOVE this breed! They are so cute, and friendly to all. I have wanted this for a long time, but can't find any hatcheries near me.


so i'm wondering if the cleanup is easier too? my ducks eat a fair amount (though less than the chickens) but what really is challanging is the wet, sloppy poo that they squirt out with no concern for what is getting slimed up. Do Fakes keep their sphincters under better control than other ducks? I might consider moving ot this breed! Also, the early morning loud qucking... how noisy are they?
It took me a minute to realize this was not a real breed, XD!
I saw a flock of these on a lake, but of Mallard coloring. No molting, noise, mess, or swimming pools. Predators, especially foxes, show no interest in them. I put a Peking duck and this breed next to each other at the edge of the woods. Within minutes, the other duck was gone. This one didn't even have it's feathers ruffled.
The cons are they taste terrible!
