This comprehensive and attractive lifestyle guide to keeping ducks and geese walks you through every step from what to consider before buying them, to how to house them, to their welfare and even egg selection.

Synopsis:

Keeping ducks and geese can be a fascinating hobby for the whole family. From producing eggs for food and painting, quills for writing, birds for exhibition or even eating, ducks and geese can add a new dimension to the garden or smallholding. They make wonderful pets: geese act as guard dogs and ducks are a gardener's best friend, keeping the pond free of weeds and rescuing crops from a slimy slug massacre.

With detailed information on 40 of the most popular breeds, Keeping Ducks and Geese shows how to select the right breed for you, what you need to get started and how to care for your birds so that you get the best out of them from the outset. A lavish lifestyle section provides recipes for using the rich eggs, family activities, duck and goose folklore, and much more.
