For a sustainable farm in Minnesota (USA), I'm looking for an egg-laying duck that won't need wing clipping, will survive a snowy winter, and will produce good eggs. What should I look into?

    Rather than just down voting, can you please explain why? – a coder Sep 20 '16 at 3:19
  • Downvoting is probably because the question doesn't show any research effort. It will also help if you explain why you think this question belongs here and not on Biology SE or Pets SE – THelper Sep 20 '16 at 7:39
  • sustainable farming is not pets nor biology. – a coder Sep 20 '16 at 16:50

    Yes, but you didn't say that that's your goal. – THelper Sep 20 '16 at 18:57

    Phone some duck farms in the neighbourhood? I think you'll have more results Googling for those than for your 'duck requirements'. – Jan Doggen Sep 20 '16 at 19:32

    For the benefit of this site, would you be willing to summarize these sites, e.g. stating the breed of duck and some reference temperature? – Earthliŋ Dec 14 '16 at 21:25
