Book Description

Nov. 20 2008

Choosing and Keeping Ducks and Geese provides a comprehensive overview of care and feeding requirements and all necessary equipment for keeping these popular and easy-to-maintain animals as pets. The all-inclusive guide provides extensive identification sections of 26 duck and 13 goose breeds and outlines how to incubate, hatch, and care for new ducklings and goslings. The author, an expert on ducks and geese, explains how to enter your purebred pet into a show, how to prepare the animal for competition, and identifies some of the standards that judges may be looking for when examining these beautiful birds. The eye-catching photography provides an up-close look at these lively animals throughout the text.

If you or someone you know is a waterfowl parent, or might be looking to become one, Choosing and Keeping Ducks and Geese is the ultimate resource for providing a feathered friend with the best possible care to ensure health and happiness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for the beginner Oct. 19 2009
Format:Paperback
I love this book. I had wanted ducks but did not know where to start or what breed would be best. This book gave me everything I needed to get going. Lots of great pictures and details about each breed. I skipped the chapters on showing and breeding as I am not interested in that facet. Now I just need to find some Indian Runner ducks and I will be happy.....before I read this book, I didn't even know there was such a thing but as it turns out, Indian Runner ducks will be the best ones for my situation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, but if you are only buying one book on ducks, get the Storey. April 26 2009

This book is really very good. The pictures are beautiful and the whole book is really well done. If you have other duck books and are looking for one with great pictures, this is it. On the other hand, if you are only going to have one book on keeping ducks, get Storey's Guide to Raising Ducks. It is the most complete of any that I have found (and I have dozens).

1.0 out of 5 stars Good if you want to see photos of dead animals Aug. 7 2009
By Kimberly Link - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book because it was published by TFH... a pet guide publisher. As a pet duck owner, the last thing I wanted to see was a photo of a dead duck on a barn floor. Why the author thought to include this is beyond me (or why the publisher didn't edit it out). This book is not for animal lovers... lots of "for table" and killing/culling references.
