So I'm thinking of getting either a Cayuga or a chocolate runner as a pet, and I wanted some peoples opinions on which they thought would work better for my situation. I live in a large apartment in a shared house so I do need a quieter duck. I've read that males tend to be quieter. I live in Montana a little out of the city, and my backyard is pretty much a big field/the woods(no fence). I would like an active duck who could spend his nights indoors, and be happy interacting with people, while at the same time I could let him outside, and allow him to wander around to forage to his hearts delight. I have raised two geese before, who turned out very friendly, and healthy. I also do own a dog(mini aussie) who is really kind, and completely unaggressive. The two geese I raised use to fall asleep on him. All opinions welcome.
