Every stock dog needs livestock to train on right? Luckily, although the city I live in won’t allow us to have sheep they say ducks are fine. We currently run a flock of Indian Runners with a token Pekin duck (named Mrs. Pekin of course!). Loki’s favorite part of the day is duck choring and training time. He makes sure I remember to put ducks up before dark and that I don’t forget how important he is to my small duck operation.
The ducks spend their days foraging free range and are raised on premium feed without animal byproducts. The hens lay a surprisingly large number of eggs. Eggs and ducklings are available for purchase when is in season. This spring we’ll be using an incubator along with natural brooding to maximize our duckling production.
