Wood ducks are very attractive, fast flying birds, but don't know if they can be domesticated.

JP, nice links, they are indeed good looking ducks, but they are wild, right?  Doubt if they could be domesticated, would probably die of a broken heart.....have an awesome day, Cindi

Cindi, I don't know if you can domesticate wood ducks or not or if its even legal, but they are one of my favorite ducks. I know they like to eat acorns and I hear they're one of the best eating of wild ducks, although I've never eaten one. But you know I like to eat ducks, so I would gladly eat just about any duck. Have you savored the flavor of duck lately?

Quacking right back at ya, JP

JP, the last duck dinner we had was when I posted that pretty picture of the duck and cranberry sauce.  I am awaiting Hannah-Davida to come down for the bee course when she is going to stay with me.  That will be in the middle of February.  I will cook her a duck dinner like she never has had.  We will have some pictures to show you guys of us eating duck, hee, hee.  (And yes JP, with every mouthful I savour, I will be thinking of you, ha, hee, hee).  I need to get some duck eggs incubating pretty quickly.  I have only 4 ducks left in the freezer.  The eggs take about a month to hatch, and then we grow them for about 2 months and then they go to the freezer.  So....that is about one duck a month dinner.  Eeeks!!!  Yes, I must get some incubating duck eggs.  Our drake is not quite old enough for breeding yet, but I know a guy who raises the Muscoveys.  He is the one that sold us the incubator.  When I get the incubating going with the turkey, Buff Orpington eggs, and the crosses that are going on in my chickenyard with the Barred Rock, Australorp, White Rock, I will be wanting to put in a couple of dozen Muscoveys too.  Have an awesome day.  Cindi
