Are ducks really as messy as people say? Never had any but I've seen what geese can do. Is it that bad? Is a pond required and why. I love duck eggs (better than chicken). And I'd like to make my own confit. What is a good starter breed for the novice? Seems like muscovys are good for meat and khaki campbells (I love that name) are great layers. I'd only want 3-4 at the most. Have chickens and just got guineas.
