Video: Keeping running ducks - important information on housing and species-appropriate keeping of snail eaters

Snails in the garden are a real nuisance. Fences, beer traps and snail grain are very popular means of control here. Running ducks are also increasingly mentioned. They like to eat snails, their eggs and other small animals for their lives.

If you are thinking about the purchase of ducks, you should carefully inform yourself in advance about the species-appropriate husbandry. Tufted ducks are relatively easy to care for, but still want to be taken care of every day. You not only need a bit of time, but also enough space. If you would like to find out more about in-motion retention, then be sure to check out the post above. This was published by the BR on Querbeet last year.

By the way, ducks are not only useful for snail feeding, they even lay eggs. A female duck can deliver between 100 and 150 eggs in one season. The taste of these is slightly different from that of chicken eggs and also significantly larger. They are ideal for baking cakes, but can also be eaten as a breakfast egg (caution: only well cooked).
