Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project promoting duck raising for disadvantaged women. The power of raising ducks is that unlike chickens, they are not easily affected by sickness and diseases. They are hardy, sturdy and can survive in difficult weather conditions such as during typhoons and heavy rains. They are also easy to raise and they can provide meat and eggs when they mature. When well-taken cared of, they are egg factories and can provide for the protein needs of the family. This reporting period we realize that we need to improve our breed by the raising of superior breeds and mixing them with our local breeds. In this way the duck bloodlines will improve. We were able to get our stocks from a nearby province and hopefully this will improve our capacity to provide livelihoods to many disadvantaged women.
Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project providing dukcs to be raised for rural, disadvantaged women. Ducks are easy to raise and they can be fed with left-overs in the kitchen. Our type of duck the Pateros breed does not sit on their eggs but they tend to produce whole year round providing regular nutrition to the households via the eggs that they produce. This is indeed an advantage and very important support to women and their families. We raised the ducks by incubating the eggs and brooding the chicks for at least 6 weeks before releasing them to the beneficiaries. This reporting period we are able to disperse a total of 200 ducklings to 45 beneficiaries. Hoping for your continuing support.
