Ducks as Pets.org
Whilst often characterised as either farm or wild animals, a small holding of ducks can be very rewarding for the owner and is relatively easy so long as some basic rules are followed. A small holding of ducks can be an excellent source of eggs and meat for the owner and by raising ducks yourself you can be confident they were raised in a healthy manner. Ducks can also keep your garden practically snail and slug free.
This site has been created to provide guidance on how to keep a small holding of ducks.
