Ducks vs Chickens was created by Preppernursetoo
I am brooding 10 ducklings. (3weeks old now). I decided on ducks for several reasons...
They mature faster than chickens.
They are more disease resistant.
Eggs are larger and really good for baking.
They can forage in the garden for pests without scratching it up.
The bedding can be put directly on the garden plants without composting.
The duck "pond" water can be used directly on garden plants as a fertilizer.
They don't crow --- quieter than chickens.
Breed I chose (Khaki Campbell) lay up to 300 eggs a year and are a duel purpose bird.
Their egg production is longer than chickens.
