There are many reasons for keeping ducks and geese. Not only are they lovely to look at, they will entertain you with their antics and make perfect 'pets' for adults and children alike. Ducks will eat troublesome slugs and snails as they follow you around the garden, making 'conversation' as they do so. They also produce abundant eggs for eating or decorating and, if you so wished, supply you with meat for the table. Geese on the other hand are excellent lawnmowers, superb watchdogs for isolated places and are intelligent, individualistic and sociable. Both ducks and geese can be exhibited and indeed 'showing' is a pastime which is growing in popularity.
