    I am going to start raising ducks, I don't know what breeds to get. I have narrowed it down to Muscovy, call, Rouen, and Cayuga. What do you guys think?

    Not to make you feel pressured but I love my Call ducks!!! From all the ducks I raise they are the best that fits me =)

    Muscovies are awesome! :) Generally very sweet and very calm. I also have pekins and mallards and the muscovies are noticeably calmer and not skittish.

    But if I could get any breed I wanted right now, it'd be calls. I love all breeds but I've really wanted calls for years now.

    Out of those i own the Muscovy and the calls BUT the better question here is what are you expecting out of ducks? each breed serves different purposes. I have the scovies for foraging(pest control) and eggs, the calls are purely pets..
