Need help on deciding breed


May 8, 2015

We just got 4 red cross chickens and are looking to add two female ducks. We would want the ducks for their eggs but would also need them to be quiet. What do you recommend? I like the Welshs but heard they can be loud.

Hi :welcome

Glad you could join the flock! I'm afraid I'm not a duck person so can't be of much help to you on deciding which breeds would best suit your situation. Please do drop by the duck section of the forum for help on this from the duck experts. Here is the link >
I'm more than sure they will be able to help you on deciding what breed to get.
Wishing you the very best of luck and I hope you enjoy BYC, I am sure you will everyone here to help and very friendly :frow
Hope the duck folks can help, I can't imagine a duck not quacking his head off, that's what ducks do. At least they don't crow.
Welcome to BYC! Please make yourself at home and we are here to help.

I've never kept ducks but some of my friends say that muscovies and peking are a wonderful breed. I would definitely check out the duck link provided by Yorkshire Coop. Best of luck to you!
