    Hey
    This weekend, at my town we are going to have the 4th ornamental fowl exposition(more than 3000 birds). I went the last year and was incredible, and this year, I'm going to spend some money with ornamental ducks.
    I'm going to buy mandarin ducks for sure, I love this birds are very cute!
    But then, I don't know what other duck I could choose... I like common teal, but the last year I didn't see, northern shovelers are very interesting, or wood duck, very beautiful.
    What type of ornamental ducks you prefer? You can tell me is you are breeder what is more easy to breed or what make you turn crazy, everything.
    The last year I saw a lot of ducks, pigeons and chikens. They were swans, geese of all types and farm animals, and in particular areas, some caged birds.
    Please, help me clear my mind and think only in the mandarin duck and other more.
    I'm posting photos of the exposition when this ends.

    And this the common teal.
    I'm passing all the photos of the exposition to the computer, so when I have time, I'm sharing with you in other thread.
    Thanks
