This is a complete guide book to the many ducks and geese kept by poultry fanciers, smallholders and farmers. It covers breeds, accommodation, ponds, breeding, showing, ducklings for the table and many more aspects of this special division of poultry-keeping.
There is a section on the fables associated with geese, and illustrations of the breeds of ducks and geese in black and white to demonstrate show requirements, as well as colour.
The usefulness of the various breeds is also covered. Many people simply do not appreciate that many ducks are the best layers in all types of poultry, and geese, which graze on grass for food, make excellent table birds with a splendid, gourmet flavour.
