About our ducks

Currently, we have two female abacot ranger ducks, which we are keeping for the fun of duck keeping and for eggs.

Our abacot ducks on grass

For many years, I have been interested in the idea of keeping ducks, but until we moved to Shropshire it had not been possible. My plan had always been to have three or four runner ducks initially and see how it went, but as circumstances would have it our local duck breeders suggested having two abacot rangers and two runner ducks.

However, given the space we have available at the moment, we decided to just have two ducks initially and add to them in due course (depending how we get on).

So, at present we have two beautiful ducks, both of which are about nine months old and should start laying this spring.
