About this title


One wild species is responsible for nearly all the breeds of domestic duck: the Mallard. Over centuries it has been developed into egg-laying strains, table birds, and pets. In The Domestic Duck, Chris and Mike Ashton explain how these breeds have been developed and how to look after them. Contents include breeds, their origins, and characteristics; classic ducks from all over the world; "Designer" ducks of the 20th century; management of adult stock; breeding and rearing ducklings; and common problems and ailments.
