Raising Homesteading Ducks 101

This easy informative peek into raising homesteading ducks 101 is fascinating.

If you live on a homestead or large piece of land and have the desire to raise fowl, then you should definitely consider ducks. While most people gravitate to chickens, there are many advantages of raising ducks instead. Ducks tend to be overall healthier, they can tolerate fluctuations in cold and hot weather better, and they’re quieter. They also don’t tear up the land as much as chickens can and, surprisingly, they actually lay eggs better than chickens, maybe due to their general hardiness.

Most importantly, especially if you have children, ducks are less aggressive.

There are several reasons for wanting ducks. Maybe you’re looking for a pet. Maybe you want to eat them or their eggs. Whatever the reason, ducks are a great addition to any home, as long as there’s enough space and you have a general idea of what you’re doing. If you’re starting to worry that you do not, in fact, have a general idea of what to do when raising ducks, then you’ve come to the right place.
