ok so I have access to these three breeds and was just wondering which is best? Obviously Perkins are loudest but how loud is loud? Which is friendliest? Which is your most recommended and why?
Ok thanks! What about rouens and khakis?Hi Jdc361,
I had the same problem because I grew up with them and my wife finally after many years let me get them again!
They are all really equal. It really depends on how much you imprint on them. Get a minimum of 2 though. My personal favorite is Cayuga's. They are exotic looking. They are pretty calm and quiet. Pekin ducks in my experience are by far the loudest and friendliest but don't mistake the loud as annoying they will say their piece to you and be quiet that is it. If you want eggs get all females if you just want pets get males. They are really quiet when they quack!
Have you ever had khakis?Honestly I love them all personally! I think runners look a little funny...but are generally great layers! Rouen's are good and my Rouen flies a little,10' high by 40-50' long, enough to get on the roof. Mallards will fly a lot to the point where you need to clip wings. I have only seen Mallards and Rouen's fly though. The point being they have a better chance getting away from danger. (Not every Rouen flies though depends on that bird)
