    Hi,

    Have you looked through the Duck Breed Focus? It's in blue letters near the top of the Duck Forum index, and we have threads about a number of different breeds there.

    I would also like to suggest the metzer farms duck breed comparison. How many do you intend to purchase. Also are there any other qualities: conservation status or breed history, perhaps?
