I've had chickens but never ducks...that is going to change in the spring. I belive I'm going to go with Indian Runner Ducks but I have no fist hand knolage just what I've read on the internet. I like that the runners are great foragers, good egg layers, and wingless. My kids and wife have also fallan in love with how the runnners look after watching youtube vidios. The other two ducks that I have really looked at are Cambell Ducks ( would lay more eggs), and Muscovy Ducks ( looks like a great all around Duck). I have about 13 acres of pasture/feild some of which I will be planting things on. And also more woods then the ducks could take advantage of. I have a large pond (35 yards by 30 yards?). I also have a brook that flows just inside the woodline of my propery. I'm looking for eggs right now not a table bird. I like the idea that the runner ducks will forage more and cut down on the food bill. Any thoughts from people that own these ducks? And can you mix types?
