Buyers of other waterfowl guides beware!

Most waterfowl care books include unwanted chapters regarding butchering techniques and include numerous "for table" references. Even those few books that claim to be specifically geared towards pet owners often advise culling sick or injured birds in lieu of seeking out medical treatment. Some will even advise that your duck or goose is not worth the expense or trouble of vet care.

The bottom line is, most of these authors are detached breeders who view their flock as a commodity. We do not agree with this point of view at all, and we know you feel the same way. Your ducks and geese deserve MUCH better than this from their guidebooks!

Did you know?

Most duck owners only find an average of 20 to 30 useful pages in any one duck  book--at best! In comparison, The Ultimate Pet Duck Guidebook has 222 pages of usable information. That's a lot more bang for your buck, and a lot more help for you and your duck!

Taloo’s teacher comes up with a unique and wonderful idea. She sends him to a special school for hearing impaired ducks. In order for Taloo to learn sign language from his new friends, he must watch and listen. And that he does!

Recommended Domestic Waterfowl Books

If there is a domestic waterfowl care book out there, we own it. We have read and sorted through dozens of them and then weeded out those that contain taboo "dinner" references, include graphic photos of animals, promote irresponsible hatching & handling or clearly view ducks and geese as a disposable commodity. Sadly there was only one left...

This is a wonderful little breed identifier book. Glossy, full-color


Domestic Duck and Geese in Colour

 


Other Domestic Waterfowl Books

These are the books on domestic waterfowl that we have read, but were not thrilled with. They are not pet-friendly. We basically have this list here to ensure you that we really have seen them all.

Buyer Beware!
