    I have a fly problem and have always wanted ducks, and i hear that they get rid of fly problems. What is a good fly eating breed, i dont want muscovys though. If you have eggs you are willing to sell let me know.

    I was amazed the first time I saw ducks eating flies! I have 2 call ducks that go around the yard all day eating bugs & flies.

    My Blue Swedish and Kahki Campells are great at eating flies and everything else.
