    I am new to raising ducks. I noticed that Storeys Guide to raising ducks has 2 editions. Any suggestion which one I should get? Or is there some other book out there that would help a newbie?

    I have the first edition, which I really like, and then I got The Ultimate Pet Duck Guidebook, and I really like that one, too.

    I have the 2nd edition, i would recommend it as it's an updated version, beyond that? haven't bought another book, i have found a lot of info through magazines and online(BYC being one!)

    I like Storey's guide because it;s a good base reference, even for those of us with experience, as it list ailments and treatments.

    That's what I was thinking. I figured the 2nd edition would be more updated.
