any duck lovers out there???

allaroundgoatgirlJune 25, 2008

I've been raising chickens for quite some time now and would like to try my hand at raising ducks.

I need a breed that is fairly quiet, and can live in a fairly small run.

Can anyone tell me about some breeds that might work for me??

Much appreciated....

Muscovy Ducks do not quack.they hiss and they do not require a pond. sound liks what you need.

my favorite has always been pekins..they are the cutest and make awsome pets as well. I just got myself 2 ducklings yesturday..and I love them. I got rid of our pond as I found it was too hard to keep clean with ducks,,but I bought them a swimming pool that is large enough for them to swim under the water and easy for me to clean out every few days or so.

Go for PEKINS!!

no nosier than any other duck..the females have voices,not the males. The males are silent,,if they want to make any noise it sounds like a raspy quack! But they are by far my favorites!
