I am thinking of investing more in ducks this spring! Reasons being,my ducks are outlaying my pullets like crazy! I love the larger eggs,ducks are much more cold hardy,ducklings grow much faster than chicks,and I have NEVER lost a duck due to sickness like I have chickens! I have 3 full cartons of duck eggs in the fridge ( I have 4 ducks & 2 drakes,and 5 pullets - 2 EEs,2 Buff Orps,1 Speckled Sussex, 3 banties) and only half a carton of chicken eggs. Oh, my ducks are a pair of Rouens,3 Ancona ducks & 1 crested Cayuga drake.
