Bring the wonder of feeding the ducks at the lake into your backyard. Ducks love to eat bugs and will forage a higher percentage of their food than chickens, plus take up less space. Their eggs are packed with omega-3s and have more of a rich flavor than chicken eggs. If these are the qualities you are looking for and do not mind a little mess or trampling by their wide feet, then a few ducks are the bread to your butter.
