    I used to have a a vegetable garden in San Francisco where there is a serious snail problem. I was reading a book to my toddler about a depressed snail who no one liked until he encountered a duck. The duck claimed to love the snail! And that was when I discovered my ecological solution to garden pests. Quackers the Duck was the first of my flock almost 3 decades ago. I have kept ducks ever since. They turn creepy crawly bugs into golden eggs. They have wonderful personalities and can be a very warm and loving pet.

    I have referred to this website many times over the last decade and am grateful for the astute advice. Even after 3 decades of duck farming, there is still plenty for me to learn.

    One of the things I like about poultry (I raise chickens) is that there is always something new to learn. BYC is a great place full of helpful people and information.

    Thanks for joining us!
