    Ducks are gorgeous they have so much personality are are very smart too(well I think mine are)[​IMG] they are so funny to watch, you will find that when you first get ducks nothing will get done at home as you way to busy just watching your ducks to cook, clean etc....

    depends. ducks are nicer [​IMG] and have a harder time eating each other [​IMG] , but they STINK [​IMG] and can fly. [​IMG]

    Everything everyone else has already said so far except I haven't tasted duck eggs yet. But I certainly will next spring!! I didn't see anyone post this, but this applies to our ducks, I only have 2 and 14 others on the way. But they can be affectionate and cuddly.

    Quote:That depends on the breed. I think that most Khaki Campbells, Welsh Harlequins, and Indian Runners are really good layers, but Cayugas don't lay much.
