Ducks are the homeowner’s friends. Eat Japanese beetles, grasshoppers, snails, slugs and mosquitoes.
* Clean unwanted plants from ponds and lakes.
* Eat up all table and gardening leftovers.
* Produce an abundance of valuable nitrogen-rich manure.
* And most important, provide you with low-cost meat and eggs.
Ducks are the easiest domestic birds to raise. They’ll forage for much of their food, and they don’t need to be pampered with expensive housing. You don’t need a pond for them either, although these friendly birds certainly look beautiful swimming on one.
