Ok, I have 2 Ancona ducks and one drake. He has become ... frisky with the girls, and lately has moved from surfing to something that actually looks like it may be successful. I mostly got the ducks for eggs, but also to help the breed and, if needed, I love to prepare duck, and am willing to eat any boys I can't sell. 1.) I know that Anconas are supposed to be great layers, but will they come to lay during winter months? (I am sure this question has lots of answers that conflict with one another, just looking for experiences.) 2.) If I am using the eggs as DP (I don't have an incubator, but if I get a broody hen this spring I have no rooster...) should I feed breeder feed? 3.) Is breeder feed bad for drakes to access? I know that layer feed is bad for them, but he is not "picky" about what he eats. I am sure a lot of these questions apply to many breeds, and I can't seem to find good info on the subject.
