At our home for the last 8+ years we have raised chickens, turkeys, and guineas. We are considering now the idea of ducks, but I have some concerns. My biggest concern is their ability (or lack of ability) to escape predators. (Our neighbors have some vicious dogs that get out about 6 days a month at least.) Do or can ducks roost in a tree to escape harm? Are mallards the only type that may have the chance to fly away quick enough? We are really interested in Khaki Campbells, but can't seem to find anything about their flying abilities. I have also that they do not hatch their own often or well. We usually hatch our own eggsin our incubator anyway, but this would be a nice quality for ducks. Lastly, do duck eggs really taste that much different than chicken eggs? We kinda wanted campbells for their laying abilites as well as other good qualities. Thanks for your help!
