Chris and Mike Ashton
Most domesticated ducks are descended from the wild mallard and over the centuries many different breeds have been created. They have been kept as pets, or for their ornamental value, or have been farmed for their meat, eggs and down. In The Domestic Duck Chris and Mike Ashton explain how these breeds have been developed and how to look after them.
The Domestic Duck is a highly acclaimed, comprehensive book for breeders, keepers and exhibitors. It is fully illustrated with photographs and diagrams depicting examples of the pure breeds and all aspects of their management.
