Farmed meat ducks

We're doing a number of things to try to improve the conditions in which farmed ducks are reared, transported and slaughtered.

Some farmed ducks facts

Ducks are waterfowl and spend a large amount of time in and around water. Farmed ducks have maintained many of the biological characteristics and behaviours of their wild ancestors, including spending a lot of time preening their feathers to clean them and re-distribute oil onto them from a gland above their tail. This keeps them waterproof and helps to control their body temperature.
