    I have kept ducks for years, if you have any questions on natural Mallard standards I can help. I show my ducks twice a year in the junior poultry section and take out the show in May taking place for best junior waterfowl drake and duck.

    I feed my ducks scratch mix which has corn, seeds and pellets in it. My ducks aren’t the best layers (if I change what I feed them they may be) of all time. They are healthy and I’ve only lost a few adults to being sick but that’s one bloodline I had.

    The ducks which are the most productive are the muscovies, they have produced many (and I mean a lot) offspring. Muscovies are hard to keep clean for show so I got some black ones since they will stay clean. The mallards are great little ducks, they are easy to get to standard but they don’t lay much and are hard to breed for me.

    Poultry I own
    Ducks:
    Mallard ducks (natural)
    Muscovy ducks (white, French white, black)
