    well, right now i mostly do domestic ducks and geese, though i have had Canadian geese and mandarin ducks. I also used to have a pair of swans. I have Swedish (blue/black), pekins, crested, runners, muscovy, rouen, cayuga and khaki campbell ducks. I find waterfowl have much more personality than chickens...way funner :)

    what do you have?

    i had a pair of mute swans...interesting birds, very pretty. I don't have them anymore. I had to sell a lot of my birds when we moved, and am slowly building back up :)

    I love ruddy shelducks! I have wanted one of those for a long time, they are really cool looking. What is their personality?

    Of other birds i have lots of layers (like more than 15 different breeds), bantams (mostly cochins and millies, but have some silkies, japs, and game bantams). I also raise quail.


    I plan to get some turkeys, pheasants, chukar, and ruddy shelducks (if i can find any).

    Yes the ruddys have been one of my favorite breeds so far they are about the size of a muscovy female and as for personality they have great ones! My male is very talkative and one thing about them I like is that they are very clean birds for ducks!
