Ducks are wonderful characters but can be messy. To minimise the mess we recommend placing their water source on a pallet (one with the boards close together), this helps to reduce the amount of mud they can make and keeps their water cleaner.
Ducks are seasonal and usually begin laying in the spring, weather dependent this can be any time from the end of February to the middle of April, eggs are generally richer in taste than chicken eggs and are favoured amongst bakers for making cakes!
Dependent on breed ducks can lay anywhere from around 60 eggs to 300 a year with indian runners, khaki campbells and cherry valleys being some of the most reliable layers of large eggs.
