Orpington Ducks.
Are you thinking about keeping a rare breed but finding it hard to choose which one?
When it comes to husbandry and upkeep, a pure breed takes no more effort than a cross-breed.
The Orpington Duck is included on the Rare Breeds Survival Trust (RBST)‘s watchlist of traditional breeds of poultry. In recent years, the number of Orpingtons being kept has declined. The RBST considers this to be one of the duck breeds at greatest risk of being lost.
Could you be a new Champion of a breed at risk?
