If you have read my blog for a while, you know how much I love my Ancona ducks. Not only are they incredibly cute, waddling around the yard and garden all day, but they are also superb slug killers. I usually detect hundreds of slugs in my yard this time of year, but this year? Not a single one!
The ducks also give us three eggs a day - that's one egg every day from every single female.
I got these ducks from my friend Loren last year, and she has more for sale right now. Loren does an amazing job raising her animals. You think I baby my animals? You should see Loren, with baby ducks stuck down her shirt to keep them warm, hand feeding them, training them to follow her like a mother duck. Here is the info:
