    I don't think any duck is prettier than a male mandarin or wood duck. As far as ducks I have kept, I would say my mallards.

    The only ducks that I have are pekins... and they would be perfect if only they would hatch their eggs! Otherwise they are my all time favorite.

    I like Welsh Harlequins. Silver appleyards are a close second.

    Quote:Same here. I have a young buff drake who likes to leap into the air and snatch worms from my fingers. He's by far the tamest duck I've ever had.

    So far I only have two breeds - calls and swedish - I like the calls better (they are funny!).

    I do have silver appleyard eggs in the bator - hope they hatch out, will reconsider which is my faves once I have those.
