Workshop Description

This workshop will explore the value of heritage breeds of ducks for farmers and families. Some of the best egg-laying breeds of ducks are rare or endangered, and therefore are unfamiliar to most folks. We will compare various breeds and provide an overview of duck-rearing practices, including information on feed, yards, housing, predator protection, incubation and other topics. Puppets and visual aids will be used to help illustrate various points, and also to entertain while sharing good information.
