Rare breeds of ducks best for smallholding

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I can't decide which breed of ducks to get?
Rouen, Hookbill, Blue Swedish or Aylesbury?








In the UK i only saw exhibition variety Rouen and I would only take exhibition Aylesbury, not the commercial crossbreeds.
Which one would you choose and why???

I'd suggest either the hookbill because of their conservation status or the Swedish for good dual purpose. If you could find utility Rouen I'd pick them as they are reliable layers and big enough to eat.
