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?

  • 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

    Yes, but you didn't say that that's your goal.

    Phone some duck farms in the neighbourhood? I think you'll have more results Googling for those than for your 'duck requirements'.

    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?
