So what am I missing here? I have always thought of chickens as egg producers but in reading these posts it sounds like the duck eggs are more nutritious, alkaline and they lay more and on and on. So why don't most people raise ducks for eggs and leave the chicken to the soup pot? I must be missing something or there is some drawbacks or something.
At this point I am considering raising chickens for meat and the reduced egg production seen by the meat breeds and raise ducks for eggs, especially being the KC is basically the size of a chicken so the feed should maybe be close to the same? Maybe someone can advise on feed to egg ratios and in general maintaining good health how much feed is needed to maintain a KC compared to a heritage bred chicken.
