I'm creating a permaculture duck yard garden for our school. I created a successful design in my backyard. http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/ducks-in-the-garden the school seen it and wants one for a permaculture school program.
I need help from you experienced duck people out there. What breed do I choose? It will be for 2 ducks just like my garden has. I have Indian Runners which are to nervous. What about welsh harlequin? I thought a light breed would be better because of less waste. I am open to suggestions!
Now the problem to over come is screaming excited kids. I was thinking it would be beneficial to hatch our own with the eggs in the classroom. So the ducklings will develop with the noise in the background all the time. So the kids will have the experience from the beginning as well.
