Have just placed my order with Metzer's for 4 ducks and 3 geese. Am getting cayuga, buff, blue Swedish, and a golden 300, all girls. Also getting 3 African geese, 2 girls and a boy. I'm going to have so many questions in the next few months until they arrive. Reading so far has not answered some of my major concerns. Please be kind until I know what I'm doing. Anyway, I am excited to be adding these birds I already have chickens. I had a duck once when my kids were little, but it was a pet house duck. Knew nothing about ducks then but did my best and she thrived. We were military and when we moved I found a farmer who had the same kind of duck to take her. My main experience with birds was raising canaries and finches 35 years ago. Not quite the same as what I'm getting into now.
