Ducks are so much fun and a she new adventure that we tried on our homestead this year. They are turning out to be a success and lots of fun to watch!
Rainy weather is perfect for the ducks who absolutely love the rain. They love being wet all the time except when they need to rest to get their energy back after lots of water play.
Ducks are like chickens in a lot of ways except they grow a lot faster, eat more, love the water and being wet, and are very messy because mud doesn’t bother them!
Ducks also lay eggs. There are some differences in duck eggs compared to chicken eggs. Check back next week for some of these differences.
We mostly have Pekin ducks and some Khaki Campbell’s.
