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.

provided ideas on how to effectively raise 'em

I want to raise a lot of animals so it's nice to have a guide that specifies on a certain animal only. Ducks are one of the easiest ones I think I can handle. The book provided different ideas on how to effectively raise ducks in the backyard.

Very good source of information.

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.

Very fun to listen to this book. I thought that raising ducks was easy but after I listened to this book, I found out that it is not. I was curious about raising ducks and the job is not that easy. From giving them shelter, to choose the foods, to their egg laying and raising the chicks, wow! The job is hard.

I'm fairly new to raising ducks, so this looked like a good overall guide. I've learned so much from this audiobook about the different types of ducks there are, how to raise them, the environment they need, etc. Well worth it. Would totally recommend to others.
