    Which do you like more? I know I like chickens more than ducks although I have never raised any ducks. In my opinion chickens are better because, they are cuter, less smelly, easier to take care of the reason I say that is you need to train ducks for swimming and stuff, chickens are quieter etc. etc. etc. Let me know what you like more in the comment section and take the poll!! Feel free to take pictures and post them here. Remember no arguing! Debating is allowed just be nice!

    Chickens,only because they seem to be more social,ducks just seem in t for the food,entirely.Ducks are also harder to make docile.

    Will add,you do not need to teach ducks to swim.Like most animals you probably have to teach them to come to a call and a routine just like chickens.Ducks swim naturally.

    The only reason I have ducks is for the fact that I can sit here and watch them play in water and etc,and because some of them are very beautiful,even when their pure white.
     
  4. TheTwoRoos explained it perfectly. I only got baby ducks this year because my Indian Runner's partner died and he was lonely. I sat with them all every day when they were babies and they still hate me.
    My chickens are as tame as a dog, much easier to bond with.
