New Ducks

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

We recently took delivery of what we thought was 4 ducks and 2 drakes. All adults, they form quite a close knit group. We have added them to our flock and they have settled in well. Alas, I think one of the birds we initially thought was a duck is actually a drake.

One of the reasons for getting the ducks was because we have not added any new gene stock over the past seven years of keeping ducks. All our ducks are interbred so we felt it was time to widen the gene pool.


Until 2009 I was working in London, UK, but I gave it up to pursue a life of self-sufficiency. My aim is to grow or forage for all my food, produce my own power and live a healthier and greener lifestyle. I left London to return to my home village of Sunniside, near Newcastle, in the North East of England.

I have a couple of plots of land there as well as the garden of my house. Our village is a commuter area for Newcastle but we are surrounded by countryside which we use for picking wild foods. My mission in life is to show that it is possible to live well without destroying the planet in the process. I am also keen to ensure knowledge of historic recipes and cooking is kept alive. I regularly try out recipes from old cookbooks using the food we have grown.

I make videos about our progress and about how to cook home-grown foods. These can be viewed on www.youtube.com/jonathanwallace.
