i want to raise birds for meat, but i am not sure which to choose chickens or ducks? i want to raise which ever is cheapest. i noticed from watching videos that ducks seem to grow faster than chickens but do they eat more than chickens? chickens depending on which breed grow just as fast or slower, but do they consume more feed than ducks or less? im just trying to determine which is cheapest when it comes to the food consumption along with how long they would be on it before they go to the freezer. it would only be enough ducks or chickens for only 4 people. what is your advise? oh and i have plenty of land to raise either or. thanks for the advise.
