    I would like to raise waterfowl. However I am torn between ducks and geese. What are your recommendations? I would like to know what you guys think is more economical, and a better forager year round.

    I am thinking of Pilgrim geese or Welsh Harlequin ducks. But I would like to raise only one of these, as to avoid problems. I know both are good for meat, eggs, calm, etc. But what is cheaper or better to raise, geese or ducks? [​IMG]

    Thank you

    Why choose? You know you'll end up with both in the end anyway, get 'em now and get it over with. I didn't even want ducks and now I've not only got ducks but geese and more in the incubator. They're all so cool and they grow exponentially every day.
