Jared and his wife from JandJAcres.net [take note of the .net] wanted some ducks that wouldn’t be too loud, would free range well, and raise baby ducklings on their own. They decided to get Muscovy ducks and have been very happy with them.
Jared is also a certified permaculture designer who trains others and teaches classes about permaculture. He offers permaculture consultations & designs to fit your needs. Permasapien.com can help you harmonize and work with nature.
Listen to hear Jared tell about their muscovy ducks including the “disaster” that wiped out 6 of their duck nests, the situation with regulations for muscovy ducks, how they keep them on their property, how the drakes “fight,” what it costs to feed them, how the ducks helped seal his pond, the rule they have pertaining to animals that they plan to eat, how the ducks help with insect control, why the Muscovy duck meat is unique, and more!
