    Just wondering... do any of the little ducks make decent meat birds? For instance, does the Mini Silver Appleyard have a meaty build like the big ones in just a proportionately smaller bird? I love quail, and their smaller size, to me, is so much easier to deal with in processing. If they are meaty little things maybe they would be good as single serving birds. Just wondering.

    Thanks... I'm still trying to make my final decision as to what breed to get.
