Ok well my son has the idea that he should buy mommy some ducks because he saw some on craigslist. ( sigh ) How much do they fly? Compared to mallards how difficult are they to raise? Good temperment or are they going to cause my chickens problems. I already had geese kill a hen so I am wary. I thought these were illegal to own for some reason, are they? Any egg laying ability? How is the taste? My dad is insistent that duck meat is greesy and gross and I have a tendency to eat un needed male poultry.
