does anyone have multiple breeds that can tell me some info? or maybe you know alot about one of these breeds? or know if there's a good book on breeds? I'm getting a new duckling for my little flock this spring and am researching breeds. I already have indian runners and want something different. the internet is not making it easy for me to find info...Because we have a small back yard we want to stick to light breeds, nothing over 5 pounds. We're interesed in Black East Indies, Crested, and Blue Swedish ducks currently. but all the info online varies greatly. We want to know about their weights, heights, or maybe just a comparison to the indian runner so we know what to expect. how big do swedish's get? how tall are cresteds? can the black east indie fly well? We also want to know about noise... Our runners don't quack alot but when they need somehting, my fan and white it the loudest stinking duck ever... ear piercing at times. I heard Black east indies are noisy... Are they loud? or do they just chatter alot? what about a crested? Were also worried about temperment. we would like to get another "cuddly" duck. Are any of the breeds i mentioned cuddly? are they really skittish or nervous? if they bond to us will they still run away? ( the skittishness of our runners does get annoying at times) Any one have pictures of other breeds of ducks next to runners so i can see the difference in size? If we got a male black east indie would it be able to breed with my tall female runner? lol I just wish there was a chart with all the breeds saying all their weights with photos/comparisons online. any info anyone could give me would be a big help! ALSO: this website i found: http://www.geocities.com/petduckassociation/breeds.html#swedish seems t list the blue swedish and the crested blue swedish very differently? i would be more interested in a crested duck and wonder if this info is correct? are the crested blues quieter?
