I really want to raise a few ducks because I have heard they will eat insects in the garden with less destruction to the garden than chickens usually do. Is that true?
I am leaning toward the Khaki Campbells because they are supposed to be really good layers, but what other breeds are hardy, lay well and do a good job at bug control.
I want to build a pond anyway, but may not have it right away, so would be interested in hearing your experiences of ducks with and without a pool/pond.
