What is the best duck to eat?
Muscovy ducks, hands down!!!
Yes..that's what I hear..but you aren't eating MINE!!!
Really - I thought it would be Pekin?? I may have to get some Muscovy. They are very broody to aren't they.

Eggs & Meat: If you want ducks that combine good egg production and large meat birds of gourmet quality, we recommend Silver Appleyards and Saxonies. For high egg yields and excellent meat birds of medium size, Anconas, Harlequins and Magpies are hard to beat. Campbells, Hook Bills and Runners are lean, high-quality, medium-small meat birds when butchered in prime condition.
So depends on what you want. Muscovies are delicious and Pekins are great too.
Even Runners are good. Ive got a couple in freezer camp.
Quote:And I hear that the sterile cross of Muscovy and Pekins sometimes called Moulard is the very best (and Most expensive)~gd
I heard Muscovy's are great because no grease. How do they compare to Pekins?
I've been thinking about raising a few more Cayugas for meat.
