There are many reasons for keeping ducks and geese. Not only are they lovely to look at, they will entertain you with their antics and make perfect pets for adults and children alike. Ducks will eat troublesome slugs and snails and they also produce abundant eggs for eating or decorating and supply you with meat for the table. Geese on the other hand are excellent lawnmowers, superb watchdogs for isolated places and are intelligent, individualistic, and sociable. Both ducks and geese can be exhibited and showing them is a pastime which is growing in popularity. Topics include selecting the right breeds; housing, grass runs, and ponds; feeding, breeding, hatching, and rearing; health and hygiene; showing and exhibiting; and ornamental waterfowl.
