    My daughter is taking some of our new ducks to the fair this year. They classes are split into the following category:
    1) meat duck
    2) egg duck
    3) bantam duck
    4) any other standard
    5) cross bred duck

    We will have Welsh Harlequins, Indian Runners, Cayugas, and mini-silver apple yards.

    She can only enter one per category. Which would you pick for meat and which would you pick for egg? I did buy show quality ducklings from Holderreads.

    Welsh Harlequins are dual purpose as are Cayuga. I'd do the WH in egg class and the Cayuga in meat. Not sure where that leaves the Indian Runner though.
