I'm convinced!

A great little book; title says it all. I've always liked ducks and have been considering raising chickens, but never considered this alternative. Very informative and a fun, quick listen.

I've been trying to raise animals my whole life. Little did I know ducks aren't that complicated to raise, and seem to be much easier to raise than chickens.

Great ideas and tips too.

I intend to raise both chicken and ducks in the backyard. Both seems lucrative but as the narrator compares the two, ducks seems to be a better fit. Great ideas and tips too.

need-to-know details

Raising ducks is not that much different from raising other animals. You still have to take care of them before you can harvest their eggs or meat. Still, there are need-to-know details that this book has provided.

Good basic book for people who know nothing about raising ducks such as myself. I would have liked more information about various breeds, care for the birds, purchasing them.
