So I have had turkeys, a ruen, (spell check) duck and many rhode island reds. I currently have 15 rirs and butchered my turkey and neighbors dog got my duck whom i loved. I am suppose to be getting 18 straight run ruens again, in 2 weeks. Just wondering what makds one more preffered than the other. I know i have no desire for turkeys again, but would like to vet some calls and maybe quail(to release). I have heard ducks are more resrleant to disease, any truth to this? I also plan on maybe consuming some of my ducks,hoping not to offend anyone, but keeping a pet male to breed. Thanks all any advice would be appreciated.
