    What is the best breed of duck for meat production? Where I'm at I know I'll have a small group to select from, But as far as feed conversion/ least problems / fastest growing what are my best choices?

    I was just reading about how yummy Muscovy ducks are supposed to be. I'd like to try it now...

    I hear jumbo Pekin are good for meat. They are heavy bodied birds that are nearly full grown by two months old. Not sure that taste, never tried one before.
