    I have ordered some cherry valley duck eggs - there white ducks good for laying and meat.

    I was thinking about runner ducks or a mixture pot luck lol

    what do you think is the cutest and best pet duck breed available

    The Peking ducks are nice. My neighbors like me more than her own owner. [​IMG]

    I sneak and feed her while she's in my yard. SSSHHHHH! [​IMG]
     
  4. I have to say the Pekin...

    I have a crested pekin names Stella and she is the most outgoing of the 6 ducks I have. I have one runner named Ming Ming and she is sooooo skittish. I also have 4 Khaki Cambells and they are pretty friendly too but not as outgoing as Stella. My lone male duck Stripey, a KC, is pretty friendly but is a real big cry baby lol He's so cute though.
