About Ducks and the Breeds
Ducks are amazing. They are typically hardier than chickens or turkeys, some strains can lay as many eggs as the best chicken layers, and
they are fun to watch with their antics in your backyard, your barnyard or your pond.
They grow quickly and our Pekin breed is ready for processing at seven weeks of age. They will rid your garden, yard or orchard of slugs, snails, earwigs or any other bug they can find.
Their manure will increase the fertility of your soil and you can collect their feathers for your own feather dream catcher.
Elsewhere on our website we have growing and management information,
along with nutritional needs, health answers and how to raise your baby ducklings.
There is also a breed comparison table for a quick review of the attributes of each breed.
