    I inferred from the title and reviews that this book would be helpful for one keeping a pet duck. Not so. Book was written for those keeping ducks or geese commercially for eggs or to butcher. Twenty-five pages on "killing, butchering, eviscerating," and pulling out their feathers. Very little on keeping as a pet. Disregarding that, this old book is not really a good reference, even for those raising waterfowl for eggs or meat. The 37 year old book is way out of date. The sections on diseases (six pages and no mention or worms or other parasites) and sections on nutrition are horribly outmoded. If someone raised (or had) waterfowl for six years without any book and then purchased this thing, they really missed the boat. If you are keeping a duck for a pet, get The Ultimate Pet Duck Guidebook by Link. If you are raising for commercial purposes, there are many newer books with up to date and accurate information. This decrepit (and in fact musky smelling) book is going in my backyard (to the trash container).

    I really learned how much luck I have had over the last 6 years just winging it with my ducks and geese. Now I hope to provide the care my birds need so they have a great quality of life. The book reads real fast but is full of information tied to a memorable sense of humor to aid in recall of same. The various charts were a real bonus as they consoladated key information in a quick access location.

    This is a great book to have on your shelf if you are raising ducks. I have this and _Raising the Home Duck Flock_. Both have similar advice, so it's nice to see the info reinforced.

    This book answers many questions about having ducks and geese for both the beginner and experienced poultry fan. It was just what I was looking for. Thanks.

    This book is my FAVORITE book on raising day old ducklings and geese for pets and for pure pleasure. Mr. Luttmann adds lots of humor with good advice on duck care. He also covers pond building for your ducks and geese as well. One I highly recommend. The only drawback I can see with this book is it doesn't go into duck or geese breeds. I would suggest pairing this book with another raising duck/geese guide. You can find this one on Ebay usually for a very reasonable price."
