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.

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).

this was a great first book for me when I began to raise ducks and geese from a basic farm background that included nothing about any king of feathered animal. It was quite helpful to the very inexperienced.
