  Thanks for the duck info tidbits you've posted. We are getting ready to dive into (no pun intended) the meat duck business. I'm going to checkout the website you mentioned, I can never have too much information. :)

  When I read the first part of your post, Muscovy ducks instantly came to mind! But, then you mentioned them yourself in the later part.
Here's a little tidbit of information: It is said that the name Muscovy means Mosquito and comes from the fact that these ducks are such great mosquito eaters!
Another benefit of this breed is that they are almost silent. Where some ducks will constantly voice their loud "QUACK, QUACK, QUACK", Muscovies will only make more of a hissing or whispering "quack".
For learning about poultry, including ducks, one of the best places I have found is www.backyardchickens.com

  Thanks for your comment. We plan to add ducks to our farm soon to help eliminate flies and other insect pests. The guy that we got our donkey from says that he never has insects because his ducks are such good scavengers. I have read that Muscovy ducks will eat hay and we hope ours will help clean up what the horse, donkey, and llamas waste. Do you have tips for us? Ann at Tyfton

  Have you ever raised chickens? Ducks take basically the same care, but they can be messier than chickens. You do not have to have a pond. I use a kiddie pool, but even that is not necessary. Ducks to not "have" to be allowed to swim, but they do have to be allowed to submerge their bills in water.
