Lucky ducks

Ducks are raised primarily for meat, but they can also be used for their eggs, and as fun pets. Pekin, Rouen and Muscovy are popular breeds. Smaller, ornamental bantam breeds like Calls, Indias, Wood Ducks, and Mandarins are also fun to raise as a hobby. They look great next to the pond and can be entered in shows.
