After asking questions here and doing a bit of research we've decided to go ahead and get some ducks. I'm looking for a calm breed and one that is easy to order online. Our dogs and chickens are going to be fenced off but share the backyard. I'd like to get some ducks that aren't so high strung that they will have a hard attack every time the dogs come charging out. My chickens completely ignore the dogs. Egg production is important but not paramount. It's just the two of us and we plan on getting 4 ducks so it seems no matter which breed we get we should have more than enough. I was set on Campbells but have read a few different places that they are a bit skittish. Also does anyone know of hatcheries that will sell just 4 birds? I've tried Metlers and the least they will do is 10. I can sell the other 5 on craigs list, but I'd rather just start with the 4. so here are the qualities we are looking for in order of preference. 1.calm 2.friendly 3.cold hardy ( our house is at 7000ft) 4.good layers 5. attractive plumage.
