We just bought a new house and started to plan a chicken coop. I remember reading that ducks are hardier and suffer less diseases than chickens. So I'm toying with the idea of getting ducks instead of chickens. I really have no experience with ducks so here are some questions. 1. How different are duck eggs than chicken eggs? I eat a lot of fried and scrambled eggs, so I wouldn't want anything that tastes wildly different. 2. Are ducks quileter than chickens? I know I can't have roosters in my neighborhood, and hens really aren't allowed either so the quieter the better. 3. What breeds are good for first time duck people? 4. Other then not needing a to perch, how is duck housing different from housing chickens?
