I’m not sure if I should get ducks so I was wondering what’s the pros and cons that everyone has
I knew you’d have excellent advice, as always.Ducks are absolutely amazing...if you are set up for ducks.
Ducks are hardy. I have not lost any ducks to diseases, and their housing requirements are minimal.
Production ducks are amazing layers. They out-lay my chickens, easily.
They seem less susceptible to predation, but that may be coincidence.
They eat slugs.
I cannot express enough how important it is to have a good setup. Constant water source. Secure fencing. Secure pen for them to sleep in. This need not be weather proof, depending on your location.
My favorite ducks are Welsh Harlequins. They are calm, excellent layers, and beautiful.
