    Hi everyone, we have decided to feature and spotlight some of the amazing duck breeds our members are keeping and working with. From now on every week on Saturday, we are going to start a new feature thread on a different breed, which will be our "breed focus of the week".

    If anyone would like to contribute in any way to this project, have suggestions, or feedback, please send me a PM.

    For quick reference, links to new breed focus threads will be added to this thread as and when we start them.

    Great idea sumi! This will give me the perfect opportunity to learn more about ducks (and see some great pictures of them).

    Thank you!

    I like this idea, it will give those thinking about getting ducks next spring plenty of time to read up on the breeds they like and Indian Runners are a very popular breed. It will give us duck enthusiast a place to send them to also.
