    Ducks can with stand colder weather,, wetter weather and in colder climites need much less expensive housing,, some breeds of ducks can match the egg laying abilities of even the best layers of the chicken
    world and those ducks eggs are not just laid in the same amount they are laid bigger also.. and ducks are also omnivores
    meaning they to can eat a wide vierity of food . from meats to potatoes to fire ants and many types of grasses .. most duck breeds are slower
    on land so they would be a little more vunerable to some varietys of predators .. but ducks most often need none of the costly medicines a chicken raiser often has to use..

    most duck breeds also weigh more than chickens and so you get more meat and some duck breeds left to forage for most of their food can even match the leaness of chicken meat if you dont want all the fat that goes with ducks .. yet in a emergency food situation you just might choose breeds that have more fat capabilities .. duck fat can be used in many more ways than chicken fat and when you have hungry kids to feed duck fat is often a substitute for butter..also when was the last time you ever heard of any one getting sick because some duck meat was left out of the refrigerator?

    did you ever wonder why in foreighn countries ducks are sold unrefrigirerated after hanging for several hours before even being sold?

    true most of these countries dont have the refrigeration in the market places but did you notice they also don't have chickens sold this way..if they have chicken for sale it has to be in ice or refrigerated..

    raise ducks you will be glad you did[​IMG]
