I now have five hens (down from 8...long story) and one rooster (Henry came as a package deal and is my buddy). I want to add ducks to my flock. Here's what I'm looking for, and I'm hoping you lovely people can help me pick the right breed for my family. Something not entirely too noisy. I don't mind quacking and chattering (I have a hen I call Loud Mouth because she talks all day long), but I don't want incessant screaming and honking like some of the goose breeds. Egg laying!!! That's the huge part. What we don't eat I give to my mom, sister (family of 6 at her house), grandparents, and best friend so the eggs are always used. Somewhat personable. I don't need anything that will let me snuggle it, but something that won't attack me every time I go near the pen or grazing area. Did I mention GOOD LAYERS?! Something that will stay close to home while grazing and won't fly off. I've been researching and it's looking like Pekins are going to be the best bet for my family, but I'd really love to hear from the more experienced duck owners. Ps. I'm not planning on breeding them, and I really don't mind the poop. I use my chicken poop in my veggie garden, and heard duck poop is even better.
