White Star Hybrid Duck
What is a white layer duck?
You have officially made the decision to incorporate ducks onto the property. However, which breed to add is the question.
Should it be about egg color? The Cayuga duck breed has the ability to lay eggs in various shades of grey to charcoal colors.
Maybe the decision to raise ducks is about egg production.
Though it could be because cooking with duck eggs creates a better dish, pasta, dessert, and even bread.
Whatever the reason, ducks are comical and very independent. They require little attention, good feed, clean, fresh water daily, and time to forage
