    Well all ducks really need care for them and you have to spend alot, For show quality ducks it takes even more money because you have to give them proper food and nutrition, you also have to take care of their feathers and keep them very neat its just alot of work no matter the breed. Some people who show ducks buy special food to keep them well fed and keeping their feathers healthy and then raising show ducks could even cost you more as even a show quality drake bred to a show quality duck wont make 100% babies show quality then you have to give them proper nutrition and be sure they develop correctly so basicly what im trying to say is that show quality anything is gonna be expensive if you want to have the best.

    ohh wait you just mean buying some ducks I thought you meant a cheap way to raise show quality ducks


    Well prices vary no matter what breed it all depends on who you buy them from, just look in classified and look around for a reliable breeder .

    Very but that makes them also more likely to get hurt
