I'm moving to a new property in Kentucky this week and after doing some research ducks seem pretty amazing. I have had chickens since 2014 and we have loved the eggs but it sounds like for eggs ducks lay even more. The only downsides I have been able to find are not handling confinement well and needing more water. Neither of those will be problems in my case. So my question is are they as good as they sound or am I missing something that has made chickens so much more popular than ducks. I have eyed ducklings for a while since they are so cute but this is the first time I have done any research on their actual utility. What has everyone's experience been?
