Indian Runner Duck Lays 200-300 white eggs per year Does not fly Can be trained to act calmly and will attach to people because of their flock mentality and have been known to follow people around the yard.
Ducks are a great slug predator. Experts recommend the Khaki Campbells or Indian Runners who are the best carnivores – other breeds might eat more of your vegetables. Some people really swear by them and really recommend these animals. A good permaculture solution would be to have your garden in between the duck hut and the pen. Thereby allowing the ducks a good munch in the morning and evening while on the way to and from home. Ducks do eat frogs! Do not mix.
